Duties of employers of employees at work at a mine

4.—(1) Without prejudice to regulation 6 (which imposes duties on the owner), it shall be the duty of each employer of employees at work at a mine to comply with those relevant statutory provisions which apply to the mine in so far as those provisions do not exclusively impose a duty on a person other than the employer, but this duty shall not extend to matters which are beyond the control of the employer.

(2) Where the employees of more than one employer are at work at a mine, the employers concerned shall co-operate with one another, by exchange of information or otherwise, to the extent requisite to enable each employer to comply with the requirements of the relevant statutory provisions at the mine in so far as their ability to so comply depends upon such co-operation.

(3) Every employer of employees at work at a mine shall co-operate with the manager of the mine to the extent requisite to enable the manager to comply with the requirements of the relevant statutory provisions and the employer shall comply with any directions given to him by, or on behalf of, the manager for that purpose except that this paragraph shall not apply to the owner of the mine.

(4) In performing his duty under section 2(3) of the 1974 Act (the preparation and revision of a written statement of general policy with respect to the health and safety at work of employees), every employer of persons at work at the mine (other than the owner) shall take full account of the owner’s safety policy prepared in accordance with regulation 6(4), and section 2(3) of the 1974 Act shall be modified accordingly.
