2012 (English)In: Australian Mine Ventilation Conference 2011: 5-6 September 2011, Sydney, New South Wales / [ed] Basil Beamish; Duncan Chalmers, Carlton, Vic.: The Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy , 2012, 113-115 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
