Nov. 21: Results of Blitz on IRS in Mines
The MOL released the results of an inspection blitz conducted in July and August 2013. MOL inspectors went to underground and surface mines to focus on their internal responsibility system (IRS). They conducted 114 visits to 103 workplaces and issued 154 orders under the OHS Act, including 12 stop work orders. The results of this blitz confirm the ministry’s need to continue focused enforcement on the IRS.
