Abstract These Regulations (entry into force: 1 Oct. 1993) impose a series of requirements and prohibitions relating to the management and administration of safety and health at mines, superseding in part the provisions of the Mines and Quarries Act 1954 (CIS 89-1407). In particular, they deal with: general duties of the owner to comply with safety and health regulations; appointment and duties of mine managers; safe operation of mines; safe installation, inspection and maintenance of plant and equipment; qualifications and training of personnel; appointment and duties of surveyors for mines; keeping of records; availability of information. The Approved Code of Practice based on these Regulations was abstracted as CIS 94-1274.
