Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia

Over the years, we have sought a close relationship with MAQOHSC, including seeking their assistance in judging our South Australian Environmental, Health and Safety Awards. In addition, we have called on their field officers for presentations and information sessions on a range of health and safety related issues and topics. We continue to be a proud contributor to MAQOHSC meetings via our industry representative and circulate their relevant and useful information resources to our industry members. CCAA in SA considers MAQOHSC to be a useful, informative and helpful resource for the industry.

Oz Minerals

OZ Minerals sought out MAQOHSC to work with some of our contracting partners at Prominent Hill, helping develop their safety management systems and provide practical guidance on running toolbox talks, auditing, conducting work place inspections and providing general guidance on meeting legislative requirements. MAQOHSC also delivered information sessions for the site on the WHS legislative changes, whilst on site MAQOHSC were more than happy to accommodate our 24 hour operations and run sessions for day and night shift, allowing us to communicate this information widely. The MAQOHSC team have been an invaluable resource for Prominent Hill, they have been very eager to provide assistance and only too happy to help with any request we have had. MAQOHSC is a valuable resource to the SA Mining and Quarrying sectors.

Basket Range Sandstone

Dear Field Officers,

We are a small business employing 25 people in our dimension stone quarry. Over the past five years we have valued your help and support for us in your area of expertise, safety.

We have a small dedicated safety & human resources department and without your assistance or the resources developed by you over the years to suit quarrying and the ever changing laws, we would be struggling to comply with all safety requirements.

Your advice and experience is invaluable to us in guiding us through a potential minefield of problems.

We have on numerous occasions recommended your services to our peers within our industry.

Thank you for a professional and friendly service,

Yours Sincerely,

Neil Mullard B.Sc. (Honours)
Director

Rocla

Rocla Quarry Products for many years has used the services of MAQOHSC, and would highly recommend them to the entire quarry sector. Their team are helpful; they listen, and are prompt. Whether it is advice on a specific issue or an audit of the entire quarry. Programs such as health screenings, including skin cancer, are invaluable. It should also be noted that MAQOHSC are independent and not tied to any government agency. This is a unique free service for SA, and in my experience the envy of the other states.

Iluka

The Iluka South Australian Exploration Team have been been in consultative partnership with the Mining & Quarrying Occupational Health & Safety Committee for the last 5 years, where MAQOHSC have provided expertise and funding over several very important Occupational Health & Safety initiatives that has assisted exploration in its strategic safety planning, which has helped determine what safety issues should receive priority. The safety initiatives included funding for two base line safety audits. The first audit was completed by a external risk manager using the Iluka audit tools. The second audit was undertaken by two MAQOHSC safety professionals - both audits produced a number of recommendations that has helped improve our safety systems and standards and also prompted other exploration Domains within Iluka to undertake similar safety audits.

Health and Wellbeing assessments are another very important safety initiative that MAQOHSC have made available to mining companies in South Australia, the health assessments give staff a "real time " view of their current fitness, health and general wellbeing - our staff find the assessments very beneficial.

We have also participated in the MAQOHSC dust monitoring program this year, the survey were conducted to measure exposure to respirable dust and quartz to drill crews and operators etc - this is another very important area that requires regular monitoring and effective controls.

We developed a Safe Production Leadership Plan for 2012 - which sets out key objectives and targets for the current year, one of our intentions is to continue to implement the good safety systems that we already have in place. The partnership we have with MAQOHSC has helped us meet our safety objectives for 2012 and improve our safety performance.

Cheers,
Paul
