The Mine Health and Safety Council (MHSC) is a national public entity (Schedule 3A) established in terms of the Mine Health and Safety Act, No 29 of 1996, as amended. The entity comprises a tripartite board represented by state, employer and labour members under the chairmanship of the Chief Inspector of Mines.

The MHSC is funded by public revenue and is accountable to Parliament. The main task of the Council is to advise the Minister of Mineral Resources on occupational health and safety legislation and research outcomes focussed on improving and promoting occupational health and safety in South African mines.

The Mine Health and Safety Council has been in existence since 1997 and is celebrating 20 years. It has provided a playform for engagement for the tripartite stakeholders. It continues to be the trusted advisor to the Minister of Mineral Resources and the mining industry at large on occupational health and safety issues. The MHSC is currently in the process of implementing the Centre of Excellence on mine occupational health and safety, which is a game changer in how MHSC is going to conduct its business.
