Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with the Australian Mines and Metals Association and the Minerals Industry Safety & Health Centre, has released the latest edition of the Mining Industry Guide to Workplace Safety, with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.

The guide covers a range of topics including:

· Establishing and implementing a comprehensive Safety Management System.

· Identifying potential hazards on roads and other vehicle operating areas.

· What to include when preparing an emergency response plan.

Along with these topics, the guide also suggests using the Hierarchy of Control to eliminate or minimise risks, and also offers control measures to avoid collisions between mobile equipment. It is an essential resource for all mine operators to ensure workers are kept safe.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Mining Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2016/17. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
