The High Hazards Unit of Worksafe is responsible for inspections of mining, tunnelling and quarrying operations across New Zealand. Paul Hunt is Chief Inspector Extractives of the HHU and he will outline HHU’s current activities which include an extractives intelligence and information project which aims to provide reliable statistics on the safety performance of the extractive industries and to allow targeting of inspections for the coming year. He will discuss the inspection focus for 2019 – 2020 as it relates to the tunnelling industry and the WorkSafe approach to regulating the upcoming Central Interceptor and City Rail Link tunnel projects.
He will also discuss the recent CPD review and the implications for Certificates of Competence. SSEs and other professionals within the tunnelling industry will be directly affected by these changes.
