With the enactment of the Work Health Safety Act (2020) and the subsequent introduction of the Work Health Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022, it is now a mandatory requirement for all Mining Operations to establish a functional Mine Safety Management System (MSMS). This system must include well-defined roles within statutory positions, with the Statutory Supervisor being one such critical role.
