International Mining Fatality Database project report

2014-12-22  The table below summarises the number of incidents that have occurred with the type of equipment involved. From the review it is evident that almost every mining fatality has some involvement with equipment. Approximately 77% of all mining accidents resulting in a fatality have occurred involved equipment. The design and fit for purpose equipment is a very important aspect to be analysed and focusing on this area is an important way to reduce fatalities. Some important factors of the equipment is that once equipment is found not to be fit for its purpose it should be re-designed or modified to become fit for purpose. This ultimately falls under an individual mines responsibility, and should become a part of each mines culture of safety. Designers and manufacturers should be using incident data information such as that contained within this database for initial design, future modifications and changes in equipment design to ensure it is as safe and fit for purpose as far as possible. Table 2: Summary of Equipment involved in Mining Fatalities.
