Statement from LNP Shadow Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dale Last MP

Published:

“The latest mine safety incident has rocked the Burdekin electorate and the resources industry throughout the state.”

“My thoughts are with the families and friends of those workers who’ve been critically injured.

“I would also like to thank the medical staff who, once again, have stepped up and are providing the best possible care.

“This incident is a reminder of the very real risks that mine workers take every day to play their part in providing the infrastructure and services that all Queenslanders need.

“Mining is the lifeblood of many towns in Queensland and the workers form strong bonds because they put their lives in each other’s hands every single day.

“I would ask all Queenslanders to have these workers, their families and their communities at the forefront of their minds today.

“Every Queenslander has the right to return home safely from work, but with 8 fatalities in 21 months, it’s obvious that the current approach to mine safety simply isn’t working.

“The LNP called for a full and open Parliamentary Inquiry into mine safety almost 12 months ago, because we need to get to the bottom of these issues and our mining communities deserve answers.”
