Abstract [en]

There is still debate about who should ultimately be responsible for the ventilation system in an underground mine. The Queensland Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2001, states that a dedicated ventilation officer is the person, while Western Australian Mines Safety and Inspection Regulation 1995 states that it is the mine manager who is responsible; the ventilation officer acts as the manager’s principal ventilation advisor. This paper outlines a comparison between both approaches.
