Risk assessment education resource
This resource was developed by the Mining Safety and Health Advisory Committee (MSHAC) to assist mining and quarrying operations to complete effective risk assessments that provide information to make good decisions about risk management. The risk management framework used in the resource is consistent with ISO 31000:2018—Risk Management.
The resource promotes better safety and health outcomes for people working in Queensland’s mineral mining and quarrying industry by providing practical examples of effective risk management. It outlines the process for developing effective risk assessments and covers two of the most common tools used for operational risk assessments—the workplace risk assessment and control technique and the bowtie analysis. It also discusses the identification of controls and how to evaluate the effectiveness of those controls, as well as major hazards and critical controls.
The resource also provides example templates for mineral mines and quarries to use in their own operations and example risk assessment for the management of vehicle/mobile plant interactions.
