What types of plant are found on mining operations?
Plant can be described as being either fixed (e.g. conveyor) or mobile (e.g. truck). The term ‘plant’ is defined in Part 1, Section 4 of the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994. High risk work licences are required to operate certain types of plant (e.g. some cranes, fork lifts, elevating work platforms, boilers).
