Current Poll

Tell us what you think: Is health and safety in mining improving?

In this month’s MPi Poll we want to look at the realities of, and attitudes towards, occupational health and safety in the Australian mining industry. Tell us your experience! The poll is open until 31 March. Remember, all answers are anonymous.

Do you agree with the statement “my employer takes my health and safety seriously”?
Do you feel you’ve seen an improvement in occupational health and safety in your company/on your site during the past year?
If you said you’d seen improvements this past year, please briefly list the kinds of improvements you’ve seen
In general, do you feel occupational health and safety regulations on mine sites have gone too far?
Lastly, a bit about you

Thanks so much for taking part in this Mining People Polling/Media Centre poll. We’ll publish the results on our website next month. You can see the results of some of our other recent polls below!
