There are a number of Findings and Recommendations in the Grosvenor Report that mention the RSHQ GROSVENOR REPORT FINDINGS
It is only Recommendation 5 that addresses the Mines Inspectorate (RSHQ) risk management and oversight practices to ensure an acceptable level of risk to Mineworkers
Resources Safety & Health Queensland (RSHQ) reviews its risk profiling and response practices with a view to ensuring that it operates as a proactive regulator.
REALLY, THAT IS THE BEST THEY COULD COME UP WITH?
This is the same RSHQ and Inspectorate that said this in a Mine Record from 9th May 2018, and then did SWEET F.A.
We explained that the mine had reported 32 HPI’s since LW 102 had commenced production in January 2018. This represented 60% of all HPI’s in Queensland associated with Methane greater than 2.5% in Longwall TG
It was also acknowledged that continued HPI’s with Methane greater than 2.5% was not satisfactory and the mine must ensure that such HPl’s are minimised, and preferably eliminated going forward.
To let CEO STONE and the SAME GROUP OF INSPECTORS to REVIEW how RSHQ conducts its RISK PROFILING and RESPONSE PRACTICES with a VIEW to ensure it operates as a PROACTIVE REGULATOR.
NOTHING WILL HAPPEN AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE.
The Current Compliance Policy was signed off by now CEO Mark Stone when he was the Executive Director on the 21st November 2017.
The Stone Compliance Policy replaced the previous version signed off by then Minister Geoff Wilson in 2009.
The current Compliance Policy does not include/reflect the Opinions, Findings, Recommendations of the 2008 Ombudsman Report or the Compliance Policy put into place by Minister Wilson in 2009 in response to the Ombudsman Report.
The Compliance Policy was cut from a comprehensive 27 page document to the current 11
In my view it is plainly a complete conflict of interest for RSHQ to Review itself.
Just how much more could any group of Management have done to become top of the Mines Inspectorate HIT PARADE, than Anglo Grosvenor?
