This ACOP sets out WorkSafe’s expectations for managing emergencies in mining and tunnelling operations. It provides information on developing an emergency plan and what it should contain, how to test and review the plan, and how to respond to an emergency
Ground or strata instability is a major factor in mine collapse and poses a serious hazard. This guidance sets out our expectations for managing ground or strata instability in underground mining and tunnelling operations
