Can SHEQ Systems Increase Mining Health and Safety Practices?
As mining incidents and fatalities increase, mining chief executives, labour and government representatives need to work together to improve the safety and health of mine workers. Firstly, the safety and health of mining employees should be the primary priority in the South African mining industry especially given the recurrent high fatalities – 58 deaths of mine workers this year alone.
Integrated Safety Practices
SHEQ assists organisations in controlling and coordinating several actions to comply with standards and requirements by providing users with information on dashboards, scheduled reports and modules which can be integrated or used on a stand-alone.
A dedicated SHEQX solution by XGRC can provide a complete view of all mining assets, including its most valuable employees. An integrated platform that offers wide applications from medical history and PPE management to incident response and employee permits and responsibilities.
By choosing SHEQX, your mine will get benefits such as core management functions, productions, and finance and using the latest Industry technology available – a SHEQX solution can improve the overall safety and health of the mining operations and its people.
SHEQX’s solution transforms your company’s data into rich visuals for you to collect and organise, so you can focus on what matters to you. Stay in the know, spot trends as they happen and push your business further.
Avoid Repeat Mining Incidents
Most fatalities in the local mines are due to the recurrence of similar previous incidents. Mining deaths can become avoidable in the future thanks to proactive safety policies and technology innovations such as IoT-enabled machinery that allow mine workers to avoid unsafe areas altogether, reducing exposure to risk and decreasing fatalities.
Improved employee risk analysis and incident management ensure that management can handle all incidents successfully and on time, from identification and investigation to action management and closure.
Implementing a SHEQX system for mining operations will improve the visibility, management, and reporting of risk to prevent incidents and losses before they occur, improve operational downtime, and ensure the safety of all mining workers.
