Workshops Conclude

Yesterday, the two industry EMESRT workshops held this week came to a successful end. In total 44 industry experts with cumulative 500 years of industry experience per workshop participated in this the second round of workshops. Using the EMESRT Control Framework, participants applied a structured process to systematically develop answers to hard questions surrounding the management of tyres and rims, and mobile equipment fires. This supports our vision ‘A mining industry free of fatalities, injuries and occupational illnesses associated with operating and maintaining earth moving equipment.’ Project plans will be managed using an online management tool, covering stakeholder engagement and communication activities. Working group members have committed to regular scheduled catch-ups to progress projects.  For more information please email Eve McDonald at
