Preventing powered haulage accidents at surface mines
Large mobile equipment such as haul trucks, front end loaders, and bulldozers are an essential part of operations at surface mines. Watch this video to learn about some of the safety practices and technologies that can help prevent powered haulage accidents at surface mines.
Ask yourself and your crew:
- How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
- What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
- How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
- What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
