The head of MinEx, the health and safety council for the mining and extractives sector, has called for all small quarries to register their existence with WorkSafe.

Chris Baker says while 500 quarries are now registered with WorkSafe, there could be the same number again which the regulator does not yet know about.

"Small unregistered quarries may be on the back of farms, forestry blocks or a rural property. While the owners may not be generating a lot of aggregate or lime, they still use machinery and sometimes explosives which demand proper health and safety practices by those working there."
