MIRMgate is a not for profit initiative of the University of Queensland to provide the minerals industry with comprehensive safety information.



Surface

Surface Design Philosophies

The Surface Design Philosophies (DPs) were developed for high priority safety issues common amongst the Surface EMESRT member companies.

To explore a specific Design Philosophy click the DP titles or 'read more' and access the relevant objective, outcomes, risks and mitigation examples.



Equipment Access & Egress

Equipment Access & Egress

The objective is to minimise the risk of events related to approach, access & egress of equipment; as well as slip/trips, sprains/strains, falls from height and failure to egress in emergency events to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Whole-body Vibration

Whole-body Vibration

The objective is to minimise (to ALARP) the risk of events related to exposures to harmful whole-body vibration (WBV) from equipment or the operating environment, that might lead to injury, illness or damage, including consideration in design to foreseeable human error.

Fire

Fire

The objective is to minimise risk related to equipment fires to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Dust

Dust

The objective is to minimise risks related to exposure to respirable dust, Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) and other airborne hazards to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Isolation of Energy, Including Parking

Isolation of Energy, Including Parking

The objective is to minimise the risks of events related to achieving zero energy state for all vehicle energy sources, including parking (gravity), which might lead to injury, illness, damage, etc. to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Visibility/Collision Detection & Avoidance

Visibility/Collision Detection & Avoidance

The objective is to minimise (to ALARP) risks related to injury, illness or equipment damage from vehicle collisions as a result of poor operator visibility.

Machine Stability/Slope Indication

Machine Stability/Slope Indication

The objective is to minimise risk related to equipment being operated outside its stability limits that leads to loss of vehicle control to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Guarding

Guarding

The objective is to minimise risk related to exposure to moving machine parts or other energy sources to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

Controls and Displays

Controls and Displays

The objective is to minimise risk of operator error related to the understanding or use of controls and displays (including labelling) to ALARP, including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.
