With millions of dollars being allocated to mining budgets every year to replace tires, components and equipment that has either reached the end of its lifespan or been prematurely removed in fear of the aforementioned, it is imperative that mines take advantage of new monitoring innovations that prolong the life of equipment and eliminate unplanned maintenance.
It is unplanned servicing and repairs that make up the bulk of extremely expensive bills that could’ve been avoided with regular, scheduled maintenance checks. Without this service, many mining operations also replace components before they have fulfilled their potential lifespan, shortening time periods in which heaps of money is spent to buy and install new equipment. In fact, unplanned downtime is 700% more costly than its planned counterpart.
The most important part of any business operation is the safety of its workforce. It is well-known how many lives have been taken by the mining industry in the past, with large numbers of fatal incidents still taking place in Africa and other developing parts of the world today.
Australia has one of the best records worldwide, and that is because of strict regulations and non-negotiable implementation of best practices when it comes to maintenance of machinery and equipment. When all working parts receive regular, scheduled inspection, the safety of employees working in close proximity can be guaranteed. This machinery, if not properly attended to and maintained, can also cause serious, irreversible damage to the surrounding natural environment.
