Mines are unique workplace environments that pose particular risks to those who work in these locations. Driver fatigue and vehicle collisions are two of the most common and serious risks faced by workers at mining sites. Thus, programs that aim to improve workplace safety for miners must focus on minimizing or eliminating these risks—keep reading to learn more about GuardVant’s successful track record of accident and loss minimization with our fatigue risk management and collision avoidance system solutions.
Your workplace safety goals should be absolute and achievable. GuardVant’s OpGuard and ProxGuard systems have helped numerous mining facilities achieve their “zero harm” safety goals by successfully aiding in the management of human error issues such as driver fatigue and collision risk. GuardVant’s OpGuard fatigue risk management system provides constant, non-intrusive monitoring of driver actions to identify instances of driver fatigue and alert managers instantly when attention is needed. This eliminates sleep episodes to ensure driver alertness while on the job for faster response times and accident avoidance. However, even alert drivers can encounter proximity risks—that’s why the ProxGuard GPS system constantly monitors vehicle location and motion and provides peer to peer communication capabilities, making collisions and their safety risk a concern of the past.
