Safety Excellence - Moolarben Coal Operations, Yancoal (Safety Light)
 
02:42
Moolarben Coal Operations (MCO) employees were engaged in a consultative process to discuss issues and potential solutions for collision incidents between heavy mobile equipment in operational areas. All crews developed ideas and solutions and the most appropriate was deemed to be a signal light on the roof of tracked heavy equipment in operating areas. This entailed the operator initiating radio contact to dozer operators who then acknowledges through the signal light to establish positive communication between the operating equipment. The solution was risk assessed and trialled under a controlled environment for a period of time. MCO employees were again engaged at the end of the trial period to assess the outcomes and highlight any deficiencies and concerns. There was only positive feedback from employees and the system was implemented on all tracked equipment with an acceptable cost per unit. Since the implementation of the safety light system there have been no further instances of collisions between heavy mobile equipment in MCO's operating areas

Coal & Allied fighting fatigue with the SmartCap
 
03:58
Coal & Allied's has introduced sweeping changes to the way it manages fatigue to ensure a safer workforce. It follows an incident between a haul truck and a grader at its Hunter valley Operations mine in 2011. One of the key changes has been the introduction of the SmartCaps to track and analyse fatigue, measuring alertness in real time. Coal & Allied says that the business has grown from 11 million tonnes a year to 14 million tonnes a year, proving that a focus on safety and reducing fatigue doesn't have to result in a less efficient workforce. This video features at the 2014 NSW Mining Health and Safety Conference where the theme is learning from the past for a safer future, with a focus on risk management and road and vehicle safety.

Evolution Mining - Cowal Gold Operations: Project Arrive Alive
 
02:25
In 2016 Cowal Gold Mine identified two incidents were caused by micro sleeps. It was identified in the investigation process that there were a number of employees who had a commute that prevented them from being able to have at least 8 hours sleep between shifts. This was causing fatigue and in numerous cases stress. It was identified that a number of past incidents may have been associated with fatigue. During Project Arrive Alive a number of changes were implemented, including a maximum of 14 hours door to door, mandatory use of buses where buses operated, fatigue education, sleep and fatigue management by the use of technology (Matecheck) and psychological training to help employees understand the long term issues with fatigue. Employees now feel that fatigue is being well managed.

NSW Mining HSEC Conference 2018 - Winner - Safety Excellence
 
02:03
Winner - Safety Excellence Sizer Teeth Removal Innovation Glencore Ravensworth Glencore Coal’s Ravensworth open cut mine is located between Singleton and Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley. The mine has been in operation in one form or another since the 1970s and currently employs 651 people. Crusher teeth require replacement up to three times a year. This maintenance task traditionally involves the use of a 6.4kg copper sledgehammer to strike the used teeth, loosening them so they can be removed. There are 116 teeth on the crusher, each requiring an average eight hits with the hammer by a maintenance technician, which equates to 928 strikes to remove all the teeth. The constant swinging and striking with the sledgehammer poses significant fatigue, ergonomic and soft tissue injury risks to the maintenance technician undertaking the teeth removal. A new, safer method was needed to eliminate the use of the sledgehammer. With no alternative method available on the market, the maintenance team at Ravensworth brainstormed new approaches. A hydraulic flange splitter was considered, however modifications would be required to allow its use on the crusher teeth. Following extensive safety and engineering consultation with regard to modifying the flange splitter, a successful trial was conducted on a full row of crusher teeth.

2018 HSEC Environment Excellence Award winner
 
02:19
Glencore Coal’s Ravensworth open cut mine is located between Singleton and Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley. The mine has been in operation in one form or another since the 1970s and currently employs 651 people. Given the proximity of operations to local communities, the potential impact of blast fumes is taken very seriously at Ravensworth and across all operations across the Hunter The current method of monitoring dust levels is complicated by the difficulty in gathering sample data to assess the accuracy of the standard industry guidelines. Ravensworth addressed this issue by combining drone technology and gas sensors to gather accurate and quantifiable Nitrogen Dioxide concentration data from blast plumes. This data is able to compare the colour of the blast plume with levels of Nitrogen Dioxide and also provides information about how the gases break down as they move away from the blast source. Results of the project have shown a correlation between the fume colour/intensity and Nitrogen Dioxide concentration which both supports and allows for future calibration of the standard industry guidelines. The project provides the data to build greater confidence on blast fume impact prediction in the industry, regulators and importantly our community.
