RSHQ’s vision is zero serious harm across the state’s resources sector. Our mission is to regulate, educate and assist industry in meeting its obligations to protect and promote the safety and health of persons from risks associated with mining, quarrying, explosives and petroleum and gas. In this presentation, Mark will discuss what it means to be a risk-based regulator, how the Queensland resources sector is performing, and the role we all must play in achieving zero harm to workers.
