AusIMM Health and Safety Society

The AusIMM Health and Safety Society (formerly the Health and Safety Committee) was established in early 2016. The Society supports all professionals engaged in health and safety practice and serves to lift the profile of health and safety within the AusIMM and the minerals industry.

The Society developed the AusIMM Health & Safety Vision and Principles in 2002. It was updated in April 2012 and can be found here
