Bulldozer Mining Accident - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Chloe Sauer's insight:

This is refreshing to see one working enviroment that has done something by putting control measures into place to minimise a hazard. If this workplace did not put the control measures into place this man would of lost his life. One step at a time gets done to improve the working enviroment.

Too many are dying in mining accidents

Too many are dying in mining accidents | Intro to OH&S- Quest 1 | Scoop.it
TOO MANY mine workers are being killed on Australian operations and too many of those are contractors.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

How can you relate the safety protocols do not line up with the legislation due to being a small firm no matter how big or small a firm is safety protocols should line up with the legislation, legislation is the law & not to line up with it/ abide by it is breaking the law.  the firms still up & running  at this point should be shut down until they can abide by the law called legislation.

Mine worker dies in underground mud rush, the third death at Tasmanian mine

Mine worker dies in underground mud rush, the third death at Tasmanian mine | Intro to OH&S- Quest 1 | Scoop.it
Tasmania's west coast communities are dealing with the third fatality at the Mt Lyell mine in six weeks.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

Hazards & risks associated with the enviroment can be catastrophic, this is why the enviroment needs to be taken into consideration to stop outcomes like this it should be closley monitored & reviewed on a regular basis. It seems like the mine was unsafe for a while to be now shut down health & safety can be at a bare minimum due to the budget - resources & production of the mine.

Mine death report cites lack of safe work procedures

Mine death report cites lack of safe work procedures | Intro to OH&S- Quest 1 | Scoop.it
An initial report into the death of a worker at a Fortescue Metals mine says there was no detailed safe work procedure for the installation of an operator's cabin on a mining machine.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

this could of easily been avoided if the lazy culture of management arranged a JSA/ risk assessment, the culture of the workforce goes right from the very top to the bottom of workers & if management do not breed a good culture into a workforce how is it ment be be possible to have or achieve a good working culture.

ACCIDENT !! - Excavator Extraction Digger Accident - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Chloe Sauer's insight:

this is why heavey machinery should not operate when ground is unstable  & as a result this is a majour loss of time due to the other machinery in down time needed to uncover the digger as well as the prep now involved to fix the floor for the digger or to now create a new one.

Fatigued miners increase road accidents

Fatigued miners increase road accidents | Intro to OH&S- Quest 1 | Scoop.it
Tired and fatigued miners driving home are causing increased numbers of accidents in Central Queensland.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

to prevent fatigue after shifts mines should run busses to surrounding areas or do fly in or fly out to major cities some mines do offer both of the above but a lot do not. I think this should become mandotory for all mines to do so.

Mother demands answers over Pilbara mine deaths

Mother demands answers over Pilbara mine deaths | Intro to OH&S- Quest 1 | Scoop.it
The mother of a man killed in a WA mine last year is horrified to learn of another death at the same mine.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

This was all about  intimidation & someone with the power has used it to his advantage &  telling staff  they will loose their job if they speak up  about safety concernes, how can someone be that heartless after people had already died at the same mine site & not do a thing to prevent it happening again. how did it even get that bad that no one investigated this more after the first death to ensure it never happened again.

Chloe Sauer's insight:

Recovery gone bad just goes to show how unexpected nor thought of hazards & risk can arise although was much thought put into the recovery at all. I think not as people & other machinery should of been removed from the surrounding area.

Monongah 1907 Mine Disaster - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Chloe Sauer's insight:

This makes me really think about how far health & safety & legislation has progressed over the years & how good workers do have it now. this clip was a real eye opener, children working in such dangerous surrounding when they should not be working at all , no training provided to employees promoting the dangers of the mine. i think the saddest thing is the employers had no care at all as to how many people even worked at the mine ( no employment records ) & also the struggle from the known community pushing for some health & safety to be put into place. it is because of all of those people that it is now to late for that workers have rights so take some time to appreciate them.

Fatal Mistakes (1999) - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Chloe Sauer's insight:

This accident resulting in the death of a man could have easily been avoided if both the rear dump driver & LV driver both followed simple SOP by communication vier two ways & LV driver parked the vehicle in the correct manner. this a a prime example of of Health & safety not being followed like it should of been & look at the outcome of two simple number one rules not being followed this should not of happened as both operators had all of the appropriate training and faild to comply they are both at fault & only have each other to blame. This is why it is so important to never cut corners & always follow a SOP, they are put into place for a reason.
