RE-INDUCTIONS: RETURNING TO WORK AFTER THE HOLIDAYS

Re-inductions at the start of the year are a critical part of your safety management system. This unfortunate accident illustrates what could go wrong if we ignore this.


HOISTING OPERATIONS
PART 2: WIRELINE INNOVATIONS AND SAFETY DEVICES

Part 1 of this series explored the major hazards associated with wireline retrieval operations. Part 2 discusses some of the innovations that manufacturers have introduced to minimise the risks associated with these hazards as well as provides some practical recommendations to mitigate the risks.


PART 1: Wireline retrieval

The increased focus on safety in recent years has prompted manufacturers, and to some extent contractors, to improve the level of safety of wireline retrieval operations and so we have seen a number of modifications to existing equipment and some new equipment being introduced in the past few years. 

Despite these re-designs there continues to be regular incidents of wireline related problems which represents significant risk to contractor staff and of course, the mining company. Based on our experience, a large number of incidents related to wireline retrieval, were due to poor equipment selection, ineffective inspection, poor equipment maintenance and mixing of critical components from different manufacturers.  

We hope that this series of articles will assist in improving your understanding of the hazards associated with wireline operations so that you and your team can better manage the associated risks.
