Principal Mining Hazard Management Plans

Principal mining hazard management plans are required for WA mines under the WHS Act 2020. We can help you write yours to keep your people safe from potentially catastrophic incidents.

What is a Principal Mining Hazard Management Plan?

A Principal Mining Hazard Management Plan (PMHMP) is a framework that identifies and manages the risks on a mine site that could lead to multiple fatalities in a single incident, or series of recurring incidents. If you have a mine in WA, you must have a PMHMP to stay compliant under WA’s WHS Act 2020. We’ll help you put yours together and ensure you can present a full report of the rigorous consultation process undertaken to regulators. And if you want to adapt your PMHMP into training programs for workers, we can take care of that too.


Clear, concise, effective

Our PMHMP are designed with your team in mind because if they don’t understand the risks and controls, it’s not going to protect anyone. Our process of developing your PMHMP is based in deep consultation with your workers. They are your biggest asset, and will ensure the risks and controls in the PMHMP are comprehensive, and understood by those impacted by them.

Seamless integration

We’ll ensure your PMHMP is impeccably integrated into any existing critical risk programs so that you’re not wasting time creating a whole separate process.

Organisations must also show how principal mining hazards interact with other hazards, including psychosocial risks. As experts in psychosocial risk management, we can help you identify and incorporate psychosocial risks in your PMHMP.
