|Various on-site safety improvements
|The site came up with three ways to improve safety at the quarry:
1) Improved brake testing facility – a horizontal test facility was produced. However, the consistency of speed of approach could not be ensured, thus it was difficult to measure the efficiency of braking systems. To overcome this, a speed monitor was positioned outside the cab to help maintain a consistent approach speed
2) Convex mirrors improve lines of visibility on haul roads
3) Training matrix – the systems for monitoring the training records and renewal dates was poor. A spreadsheet was produced to identify when an employee needed to be trained. Ninety days before expiry of the training certificate, the cell on the spreadsheet changes from green to amber, changing to red when the training certificate has expired.
