About us

Established on 1 July 2020, Resources Safety & Health Queensland (RSHQ) is the independent regulator of worker safety and health in Queensland's mining, quarrying, petroleum, gas and explosives industries.

Our focus is on ensuring the protection of the safety and health of workers and community affected by resources operations and explosives use.

The passing of the Resources Safety and Health Act 2020 by Queensland’s state parliament on 17 March 2020 established Resources Safety and Health Queensland as a statutory body, with a chief executive officer reporting directly to the responsible Minister.
