Did anyone notice the new kid on the block? The new NSW Mining legislation?
Like a low flying duck they flew pretty much under the radar, but is the new and improved WHS Act and Regulation for the mines in NSW mutton dressed as lamb or is it really the beez kneez?
I’ve been working through this legislation for a few clients since it made its debut in February 2015 and I just need to put it out there, I’ve been in full nerd zone with lots of ‘ooh’s and ‘ahh’ at the curls they’ve thrown in there. I don’t know if it’s good or bad to say this but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting my teeth stuck into this new legislation..
So what’s different with this new kid on the block?

There’s also a decision you need to make if you are going to update all your jargon in your WHS documentation to the new and improved jargon in this new legislation – such as OHS to WHS etc, we may have a 30 year marriage with this girl, so keep that in mind divorces are costly.
