Abstract/Citation: The amendments provide for the establishment of a Coal Mining Safety Commission and set forth a coal mining employer's duties in relation to safety. The employer must permit inspections and tests on machinery or equipment. No machinery or equipment in respect of which no prescribed safety standards are applicable may be used without approval. Personal searches of a certain proportion of employees, and of all non-employees, entering a mine are required periodically for the purpose of preventing alcohol, smoking materials and drugs from entering the mine. Safety and health committees are to submit an annual report of their activities. With these provisions, new ss. 82.3, 94.1 and 94.2 are added to the Labour Code, and its ss. 92(11), 105 and 106 are amended.
