Off-site road transportation (access roads) to remote mining (and other natural resources) operations (public, private or semi-private) poses a series of unique challenges to people in charge of their Safety, Security and Hazard Management.
This course draws information from a number of real-life studies performed on this type of road by the authors (Riskope) and its Road Safety Division (Eurosain), and presents them following the logic of a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report that could be prepared for a road that crosses a variety of terrains and is subjected to a wide array of hazards, considering, of course, a variety of climatic zones. The course is divided into steps, which correspond to those necessary to complete a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report.
At the end of the course, the course proposes a catalogue of mitigations that can be integrated in order to enhance Safety, Security and Hazard Management along any (mining) road. These include both physical mitigations on the road/infrastructure, and personnel hazards mitigations, including a review of driver’s fatigue, high altitude effects, etc.
Technical Appendices deliver specific information that will help Road Managers to design specific signals and signage.
This course (Live webcast on 10, 11 October 2012) makes references to prior Edumine courses by F. Oboni and C. Oboni whenever necessary, but doesn’t require their knowledge and does not repeat any information on risk assessment, risk, or management.
