The Centre is well positioned to extend the traditional concept of mining health and safety from delivering benefit to people working in the resources industry, to the communities and economies that rely on it.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
