Achieving Zero Harm

Every industry is exposed to varying degrees of risk. However, it is widely understood that operating companies should take appropriate action to mitigate existing levels of risk as much as they can and protect their workers.

Mining Safety

Mining disasters are big news. There is something about men and women buried alive that captures the imagination and horrifies people - and well it should.

A Fresh Approach

Mining expert Philip Shead explores the factors that mine operators need to take into account to optimise air quality and ensure the wellbeing of their employees.

Planning for the Worst

Regardless of the operational requirements, industrial works locations invariably include technically challenging and sometimes hazardous environments. General attitudes and attention towards safety during elevated risk work, however, have changed immensely over the past decade.

Mining Tragedy Revisited

2012-11-28 EHS News: The loss of 29 lives in the Pike River Mine Disaster of November 19, 2010 will be forever remembered as one of the darkest days in the history of coalmining in New Zealand. As an industry we are cons

Mining The Depths of Safety

Mining is an ancient occupation, long recognised as being arduous and liable to hold the potential for injury and disease. The lifecycle of mining consists of exploration, mine development, mine operation, decommissioning and land rehabilitation.

Oil Spill Disaster in Nigeria

Two thirds of the earth is water and one third is land or soil. Oil spills affect both. Spills on land obviously impact on the soil around the site and may impact on ground water and surface waters, like rivers and lakes. Likewise, spills at sea, such as the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster, may contaminate soil and water miles away from the sites. On December 24, 2011, many Nigerian newspapers reported the oil spillage at Bonga, an oil creek in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria. It was not long after this was reported that another report came regarding an oil spill in a nearby creek.

A Framework for Safety in Mining

More than a year after the devastating tragedy at Upper Big Branch in West Virginia, USA, where 29 miners perished and the dramatic rescue of 33 miners from the Copiapů mining accident in Chile, mining organisations around the globe continue to be faced with serious questions about their safety practices.

Gas Detection

The certification process for gas detection equipment can be complicated in China. Gas detection manufacturers from other major trading blocks around the world will find that exporting products to the Chinese market doesnít follow a similar route to those for European or North American approval, for example. Differences in national standards, and a stringent approval route makes Chinese approval for gas detection products confusing and time-consuming, but not without its economic advantages.

Gas Detection

Mines can be hazardous environments and the possibility of fire, flood, explosion, asphyxiation, toxic gas poisoning and collapse has the potential to simultaneously affect a large number of people.

Deep Mining

Although figures are often hard to come by mining probably still kills over 10,000 people around the world each year, mainly through explosions, falls of rock, flooding and in shaft and transport accidents. For many workers mines remain dangerous places to work.

ATEX Directives 94/9/EC and 99/92/EC

The Directive ATEX 94/9/EC of 23rd March 1994 on the approximation of the Laws of the Member States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres has been published on the official EC Gazette No.100 of 19th April 1994.
