The eleventh edition of the annual Mining Industry Guide to Workplace Safety has been released with more than 3000 copies delivered to mine sites and mining operations.
Since 1998 Pro-Visual Publishing has helped mine sites manage critical workplace safety issues by supplying these safety information resources free of charge to all mining organisations in Australia.
“The issue of health and safety in the mining industry is a critical one, which should be addressed by mine owners, managers and employees on a daily basis,” Australian Mines & Metals Association (AMMA) general manager membership services Corlia Roos said.
“The Mining Industry Guides are highly durable, enabling their display in the environment for a full 12 months. The information is presented in a straightforward and user-friendly manner so complex topics are easily referenced and understood.
“AMMA is confident this Guide will continue to play an important part in safety regimes on active mine sites throughout Australia.”
This latest edition of the Guide, the fifth produced in consultation with the AMMA, focuses on key issues currently affecting the industry, including safe driving on mine sites, managing driver fatigue, working underground, contractor safety management and safety incentive schemes. It suggests preventive actions and day-to-day guidelines for improving safety in these areas, using an accessible wall chart format ideal for reminding miners about safe work practices.
