The Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulation 2014 - NSW is now well into its application and the smaller mining and quarrying operations have made many of the changes to bring their systems and equipment in line.

One of the requirements under the legislation is an Electrical Engineering Control Plan (EECP). If implemented correctly the EECP should cover all of the major statutory requirements (electrical) of the Regulation. The mines department issued a guide on the EECP and this paper summarises some of the requirements with a focus on smaller surface metalliferous mining operations.
