Over-speed management is inadequately considered in mine design and work planning, caused by:

  • * Not setting the speed limit correctly (too high for geometry/traffic or too low and encouraging non-conformance)
  • * Setting cresting speed limits but not delineating the crest
  • * Decline gradient

 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-01P.07 Site specific travelling speed information prepared for vehicle operators
  • BI-04P.01 Vehicle interactions are considered as part of the short-term planning processes
  • BI-05D.01 Clear accountabilities for managers, superintendents and supervisors are included in comprehensive, site relevant road design guidelines and traffic management plans
  • BI-05S.03 Hazard and incident reporting process that generates value adding corrective actions
