Service Description

In mining operations, the responsibilities with regard to safety and order in mining must be clearly regulated. In addition to you as the employer and your representatives, so-called "responsible persons" also ensure that operations run smoothly.

Responsible persons are supervisors who have been appointed to manage or supervise the operation or part of the operation. Responsible persons ensure, for example, the health and safety of employees or monitor the disposal of mining waste. If no responsible persons are appointed, you as the employer are directly responsible.

If you appoint responsible persons in your company, you must notify the competent mining authority. In doing so, you must precisely describe the tasks and powers of the responsible persons, and their powers must correspond to their tasks and abilities.


Process flow

You can nominate responsible persons online via the "BergPass" platform or in writing to your competent mountain authority.
