Information:

As required by legislation, all mines report ‘High Potential Incidents’ to the Department of Mines and Energy. From this reported data, a more detailed study of the occurrence of fires in general has been made, the results of which can now be reported.

In total, there were 228 fires in the 12 month period and each had the potential to harm a person. It is therefore critical that the industry takes steps to reduce the number of fires.

Coal mines and mobile equipment account for the vast majority of the fires.

The following Safety Bulletin outlines the poor maintenance practices which enable these all too common fires to occur.
