PROXIMITY DETECTION SYSTEMS, ARE YOU READY FOR THE DECEMBER 2020 DEADLINE?

On April 14th, Anton Lourens, managing director of Booyco Electronics, and Kate Collier, partner at Webber Wentzel, will be two of the panellists covering this crucial topic in a Webinar brought to you by Mining Review Africa.

Mine safety legislation is getting progressively tighter as the industry strives towards achieving its objective of Zero Harm. New legislation promulgated by the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy requires all mines to take steps to install proximity detection systems (PDS) on trackless mobile machinery to mitigate human and machine related incidents, both at surface and underground.

The pressure is now on, given that Level 9 safety standards must be in place by December 2020. Failing to do so could mean severe action being brought against responsible parties and mine owners.

INTEGRATING A NEW WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY ON MINES

The mine of the future is being built increasingly on highly specialised technologies, many of which are quite new to the skill sets that mines traditionally employ. This has led to the emergence of ‘technology integrators’ who must assist mines in getting the most value from emerging innovations. Anton Lourens,…

PROXIMITY DETECTION MOVES WITH THE TIMES

As the mining industry works to improve the level of safety around mining vehicles, proximity detection systems (PDS) and collision prevent systems (CPS) have been evolving into more interactive collision avoidance systems.
