specialist explosives training

Mine inspectors undergo capacity building

The training covered safe transportation, storage, handling and use of explosives for blasting operations at mines, which are required under the Mining (Safety) Act 1977 and Regulations 1935.

Chief Inspector of Mines, Lave Michael, said the training gives the MRA a technically aligned, highly skilled and competent inspectorate team that would effectively deliver on their statutory obligations.

He said the training would further ensure that compliance is maintained at international industry best practice levels.
