MinEx is the national health and safety council for New Zealand’s extractives sector with a vision to have a New Zealand Extractives sector free from fatalities, injuries and diseases.

With a mandate to develop an industry view on relevant legislation, regulations, guidelines and training matters through leadership and consultation, MinEx works with WorkSafe and other agencies to adopt and implement those views.

MinEx also has a role in supporting the extractives sector to improve health and safety performance through provision of statistics, resources, training and information related to health and safety performance.
