Mining processing involves workers interacting with conveyor belts and significant pinch point and entrapment hazards. Ore and materials are off-loaded, sorted and refined. Although much of this work is automated workers are still required to conduct maintenance work to keep belts and rollers functioning.
This module trains about pinch points and guarding with a focus on addressing hand injuries and coming into contact with moving parts. Isolation procedures reinforce the importance of ‘testing for dead’ before any work is undertaken.
This module trains on the safety of workers navigating around moving equipment and overhead loads. Barricading requirements and clear communication are trained to ensure that workers do not place themselves under a suspended load.
