Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Group Workshop: Creating community to drive operational excellence
The GMSG Operational Safety and Risk Management Working Group invites participation in a survey about Leading Indicators for Safety. The results of this survey will help determine the most effective way to build on the document published by ICMM last November. The goal is to enable all mining companies to be able to incorporate Leading Indicators in their safety programs, and work towards a standard definition to enable cross-industry comparisons.
Mine Equipment, Productivity and Safety Improvement through Integrating Technology—A Collaborative Development of a Unified Shovel Operator’s Interface and Display Proof of Concept
As state-of-the-art technology developments drive productivity improvements of mine equipment forward, a lack of integration has left operators faced with a confusing labyrinth of proprietary systems and multiple display devices. One example is on large shovels, today loaded with numerous independent operator interfaces and screens in the cab, posing potential safety risks such as lessened visibility, complacency/no- or insufficient-response, and inadequate situation awareness due to data and information overload. Operator efficiency and productivity are negatively affected as operations wrestle with the task of turning a vast amount of real time equipment and production data into supportive operating information. This myriad of instruments needs to be orchestrated into an integrated interface designed to ensure the right information is available to the operator at the right time.
