Driving safety in Mining through Risk-based Inspections

Intro Risk-based inspections are an important method for driving safety in mining operations. Unlike traditional inspections, which are based on a predetermined schedule, risk-based inspections prioritize areas of the mine that are more likely to be susceptible to accidents or incidents.   By identifying and mitigating potential hazards, risk-based inspections can contribute to improving safety standards and reducing the likelihood of accidents.   One of the main benefits of risk-based inspections is that they allow mining companies to focus on the areas of the mine that pose the greatest risk to workers and the operation. This means that resources can [...]

Are you a mining manager? So you’d better read this right now!

Mining and Metals managers are facing a strong conflict within their operation: how can I increase my productivity?   The answer is complex, but two approaches can be used to tackle this dilemma. One possible approach, although very time-consuming and costly, is to expand mining sites.  The other is all about driving the digital transformation through all organizational levels   The roadmap to a mining digital transformation    A successful digital transformation strategy cannot be implemented if it lacks strong leadership. The culture change required for a transformation of such magnitude demands people's support and massive embracement. Digital transformation is [...]
