METS Tech Talk: Honing in on Zero Harm – What’s Next in Safety Technologies?
Austmine’s METS Tech Talks Webinar Series will put the
spotlight on the latest innovations and game-changing solutions set to
transform the mining industry as we know it.
Our fifth session will focus on ‘Honing in on Zero Harm –
What’s Next in Safety Technologies?’
Mining is a tough industry, characterised by harsh terrain, remote
locations and difficult working environments. Unsurprisingly, an industry that
operates at 3.84km below the ground, or almost 5km above surface level,
presents unique risks for the workforce. This means that mining is one of the
most hazardous industries in the world. While technology continues to progress
rapidly, sending employees home safely each day remains a major challenge for
This webinar will highlight the emerging solutions targeting
increased safety for mining companies and their workforce. Innovations explored
will include the use of sensors, data analysis and predictions and improved
AI platform that makes unseen safetyrisks more visible
Darren Phillips, General Manager, Fusable
has developed a proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) platform that
turns the traditional views of safety data and risk identification on its head
within the mining industry. Using natural language processing and machine
learning, Fusable enables organisations to identify previously unseen safety
risks and uncover never before seen safety insights.
Early Fire Detection on Mine Conveyors Using Distributed Temperature Sensing
Ubaldo Torre, Director, Advanced Photonics Australia
detection on and around mining conveyors has been difficult to achieve using
conventional point heat detectors and aspirating CO gas detectors.
proven DTS technology using a linear heat detector on a single core of a new or
existing fibre optic cable, to achieve total fire detection on your underground
or surface conveyor systems.
performance indicators for safety at your mine: How to best evaluate safety
Marcos Bayuelo, MineProtect Portfolio Manager, Hexagon Mining
The mining industry is shifting focus into safety now that productivity
is being optimized. Solution providers have worked in multiple layers of safety
solutions at the mines. Now the question arises, how do we define the various
dimensions of safety performance and what should the currencies of evaluation
be that are embodied in the PI system? Is there sufficient technology to
measure the defined PIs? How can we measure good performance and who will
determine success? Technology adoption and industry knowledge can provide the
correct answers to determine a virtuous set of PIs that evolve with experience.
Technology Removing the Human Element in Hi-Wall Scaling Activities - The Jayben S60 Scaler
Bob Calvert, Project Leader-Marketing, Jayben Australia
S60 Scaler is a diesel powered fully remote controlled crawler unit utilising
the very latest in WiFi technology, allowing the operator through 3D camera
imaging to carefully remediate hiwall degraded surfaces. Together with the
ability to clear material build up on benches and berms of open pits.
Addressing Critical Outcomes for the Mining Industry
Rhys Crabb, APAC Solutions Manager, Honeywell
Mining safety that’s always on hand. As one of the most dangerous
workplaces in the world, mines demand the highest levels of protection. From
helmets to portable gas detectors, Honeywell mining solutions help ensure your
workers make it back to the surface unharmed and process is all aligned with
environmental compliance. Furthermore, Honeywell knows that the digital
transformation of mine sites is an essential need to be more productive
for reduced costs, improved asset life-cycle, workforce utilization, sites are
safe & secure, incidents managed for multisite and production demands met
on time. Thanks to Honeywell analytics and AI expertise, Honeywell
integrated scalable software platforms allows the collaboration of existing and
new systems in the facilities for reaching out to the most critical outcomes
and keeping KPIs on track.
