WHS undertaking rejected

A WHS enforceable undertaking submitted by Maules Creek Coal Pty Ltd (MCCCPL) has been rejected by the Regulator.

The proposed undertaking was submitted following an incident on 21 April 2018 in which a haul truck and service truck collided at a major intersection on Maules Creek Coal’s haul road.

The regulator rejected the undertaking on 28 April 2020 having regard to the seriousness of the conduct alleged, the maximum reasonable consequences of the event and the merits of the safety initiatives proposed.

Proceedings previously instituted against MCCPL in connection with the incident are listed before the District Court of New South Wales on 4 May 2020.
