Mining industry operations in remote locations poses many challenges requiring the management of crew safety, maximising onsite efficiency and maintaining reliable communications.
Real-time management of mine sites, enables faster decision-making for increased efficiencies, reduced cost and enhanced security of staff. By knowing the immediate status of assets across an entire operational area, experts can rapidly assess the situation from their own office or deploy an onsite team to investigate should an incident occur, thereby boosting productivity by reducing downtime.
OH&S is an increasingly critical priority within the mining sector as insurance premiums reflect the potential hazards encountered on mine sites and the remote surroundings. Ensuring guaranteed voice and data communications is one of the most important concerns for the operation’s management in reducing OH&S incidents.
