Since the advent of regulation of the exploration sector of the industry with the proclamation of the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994, the mines inspectorate has become increasingly concerned with the performance of some exploration and drilling companies, (and some producing mines where exploration activity is being undertaken), with regard to the protection of employees from well recognised and commonplace hazards in the exploration drilling workplace.

Some of the more enlightened exploration and drilling organisations have taken their own steps to ensure that their workplaces are as free from hazards as is practicable and for this they are to be highly commended. However, the remainder of the industry has some way to go in order to provide the necessary protection for its workforce from foreseeable and preventable injury.
