Abstract:
The Mining and Quarrying Occupational Health and Safety Committee (MAQOHSC) aims to promote high occupational health and safety standards to prevent injury and disease in the mining and quarrying industry within South Australia.

The Committee was established under the Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare Act, 1986 and continues existence under the Work Health & Safety Act 2012 (SA). Its principal function is to administer expenditure from the Mining and Quarrying Industries Fund.

The fund was originally set up in 1941 under the Workmen's Compensation (Silicosis) Scheme and was administered by the Silicosis Committee. Interest on the investments is now used to fund MAQOHSC's initiatives that minimise injury and disease and promote improved occupational health and safety practices in the SA mining and quarrying industries.

The Act provides that the Committee may utilise the fund for the following purposes:

  • To promote and support practices and procedures designed to protect workers from silicosis.
  • To support education in occupational health and safety in the mining and quarrying industries.
  • To initiate or support research and studies into occupational health and safety that could benefit workers in the industries.
  • To promote and support people or organisations working to prevent, alleviate, or treat the kinds of disabilities suffered by workers in the industries.
  • To support any other kind of activity that could directly or indirectly improve occupational health and safety or assist rehabilitation of disabled workers in those industries.

The Committee was not functioning 2001 - 2002 and 2003 - 2004.
