This report has been prepared by the NSW Resources Regulator (the Regulator) for the NSW mining industry, original equipment manufacturers and suppliers. It contains annual data of notified incidents involving fires on mobile plant (FOMP) for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023.
The Regulator’s position is that all fires on mobile plant are avoidable and preventable and we have adopted a zerotolerance approach where mine operators have not taken appropriate steps to manage this risk.
