Recommendations to industry: Operators are reminded of the potential hazards associated with a dozer on a stockpile.
The recommendations in MDG28 Safety for stockpiles and reclaim tunnels should be considered. Dozer operators should have appropriate experience for the task.
Mines should ensure all supervisors and workers are trained to identify and notify incidents when a notifiable incident occurs.
A dangerous incident (as prescribed in clause 179 of the WHS (MPS) Regulation 2014) must be reported immediately to 1300 814 609 and the incident site must be preserved until an inspector arrives on site or otherwise directed by a government official from the regulator.
