Site management does not consistently implement mine traffic plans to an adequate standard, caused by:

  • Lack of knowledge and operational experience e.g. setting speed limits
  • Failure to adequately communicate changes
  • Failure to regularly review and improve operating environment e.g. intersection demarcation and/or lighting
  • Road, intersections and barriers layouts designed, constructed and maintained without referencing Site/Corporate guidelines, standards and external regulation.
  • Failure to communicate new requirements and update documentation e.g. speed limits on ramps

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-03P.03 Expected routes by vehicle type are effectively communicated.
  • BI-03P.05 Mobile equipment operators follow road rules and adjust based on conditions and circumstances.
  • BI-03T.01 Ceasing Operations Procedure – compromised operating environment
  • BI-04T.01 Ceasing Operations Procedure – significant interaction threats
  • BI-05P.01 Shift to shift communication
  • BI-05P.02 Site change management process apply to changes in equipment, road networks and traffic flows
  • BI-05P.03 Consultation and communication on traffic management plan
