Measuring and Managing Work-Related Fatigue Risk

Work-related fatigue, a common hazard in many environments, is associated with elevated health and safety risks. Measuring and managing this risk is critical in 24/7 safety-sensitive industries. This talk focuses on common methods and technologies used to measure fatigue, and how work-related fatigue risk can be mitigated through effective Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS). With some of the longest working hours and shortest sleep durations compared to other industries, a keen emphasis wi...

What are Tailings: An Overview of Tailings Management

Management of tailings, a waste product of the mining process, is a complex discipline required throughout the lifecycle of a tailings facility. Mineral processing technology is a key element in selection of a tailings management strategy, including tailings dewatering to recover water and achieve target physical characteristics. Any tailings management strategy must necessarily consider risk and consequences of failure. Increasing tailings volumes from declining ore grades and increasing produc...
