Part 36 Mining

Section 681 Annual plan

Annual mining plans provide the Director with general information related to planned mine development. They provide an opportunity to review and question planned development and to assess future worker risk and general management initiatives. In designing a mining plan, the professional engineer has many other considerations besides safety to take into account. These include production, economics, use of available resources and equipment, product quality, conservation and environmental impacts. The Director however, focuses only on worker safety. Section 8 of the OHS Regulation requires that the plan be in writing and available to workers.
