Mining is a highly regulated industry, mines have adopted practices and procedures to ensure they work safely and efficiently

However…….


Why is road safety and traffic management important
Why is road safety and traffic management important?

  • Critical element in meeting “zero harm” targets

  • Ensure people travel safely while at work and on their journey to and from work

  • Minimise injury and property damage

  • Manage and minimise risk

  • Reduce costs and inefficiency

  • Legal and duty of care obligations


Traffic on mines
Traffic on mines

  • Factors and causes in traffic related accidents include:

    • Speed related

    • drivers (fatigue, drugs, alcohol, risk taking, training)

    • distraction

    • vehicles (condition, appropriateness,maintenance)

    • lack of vehicle separation

    • vehicle speed / size differential


Traffic on mine sites vehicle types
Traffic on mine sites – Vehicle types

  • Light vehicles

  • Heavy vehicles

  • Large mobile equipment (ancillary)

  • Trains

  • Delivery vehicles

  • Contractors

  • Pedestrians


Road safety considerations
Road safety considerations

  • Safety issues on mining roads

    • Haul roads

      • interaction with heavy mining machinery

    • Access roads (sealed and unsealed)

      • interaction with the public road network

      • visitors other external drivers

      • fatigue and speed

    • Service roads

      • remote journeys (bore fields, exploration, powerline, railway access, etc.)

      • interaction with host communities and general public





Existing mine sites effective speed limits
Existing mine sites - effective speed limits

Mine operators using too many speed limits and inconsistant speeds for their roads


Existing mine sites intersection design
Existing mine sites - Intersection design

Vehicle separation at intersections


Existing mine sites roadside hazards
Existing mine sites - Roadside Hazards

  • Structural Columns too close to access road

Culvert too close to edge of road

Lighting column within road reserve


Existing mine sites roadside hazards and safety barriers
Existing mine sites - Roadside Hazards and Safety Barriers

  • Use of barriers that do not comply with Australian Standards

  • Insufficient space for deflection

  • Need to have minimum length to be effective

  • No barriers in place to protect errant vehicles from roadside hazards


Existing mine sites signs use of non standard signs
Existing mine sites - Signs Use of non standard signs

Use of non-standard and inappropriate signs


Existing mine sites pedestrians
Existing mine sites - Pedestrians

  • Clearly delineated pedestrian routes separated from vehicular traffic

  • Railing preventing pedestrians entering the roadway


Existing mine sites pedestrians1
Existing mine sites - Pedestrians

  • Examples of obstructed pedestrian routes

  • Pedestrian routes need to be free of obstacles and trip hazards
