Opportunities to minimise vehicle interactions through good practice mine planning are not applied, caused by:

  • Failure to include road segregation requirements
  • HV or other vehicles must turn in front of loaded HVs due to scheduling or road network design
  • Planners not adopting site/corporate guidelines for road construction or production scheduling
  • Allowance not made for clearance from fixed/overhead structures
  • Failure to include road segregation in issued plans

 This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-00D.01 There is a documented site Traffic Management Plan
  • BI-00S.01 Senior management review, update, and confirm the Traffic Management Plan as being fit-for-purpose by senior management:
  • BI-03D.01 Road design guidelines set minimum standards for the construction and maintenance of the road network
  • BI-03P.03 Expected routes by vehicle type are effectively communicated.
  • BI-03P.11 Clear requirements for loading from structures e.g. reject bin
  • BI-03S.05 Infrastructure protection – placement of barriers and/or warning devices to prevent unwanted vehicle interactions
  • BI-03T.01 Ceasing Operations Procedure – compromised operating environment
  • BI-04D.21 Road design guidelines specify minimum parking area requirements
  • BI-04P.11 Protocols for working on equipment in production areas
  • BI-04T.01 Ceasing Operations Procedure – significant interaction threats
  • BI-04T.20 Proximity detection, alerts, advice, and intervention
  • BI-05D.01 Clear accountabilities for managers, superintendents and supervisors are included in comprehensive, site relevant road design guidelines and traffic management plans
  • BI-05D.02 Clear accountabilities for planners are included in comprehensive and site relevant road design guidelines and traffic management plans
