Mining legislation, Work Health and Safety legislation, and “duty of care” requirements in each State require quarry operators to manage the hazards associated with Worker Health. In NZ this includes the requirement to develop a Worker Health Plan. This webinar provides information on:
- Site Worker Health hazards including dust, noise, hazardous substances, psychosocial hazards
- Exposure monitoring and health surveillance
- Effective management of worker health hazards
- What should be in your Worker Health Plan
Participants will also be given practical examples of how small scale quarries have achieved significant safety improvement through managing worker health hazards.
