The mining industry has always been ranked among the ones that have the most dangerous working environments. It is a hazardous operation and consists of considerable health and safety risks to mining personnel. Each year, a large number of injuries and deaths are recorded from mining accidents globally.

There are various causes for the occurrence of mining accidents, including leaks of poisonous or explosive natural gases, collapsing of mine stopes, dust explosions, flooding, or general mechanical errors from incorrectly used or malfunctioning mining equipment.

Health & Safety: Health and safety of workers remain a challenge in the industry. A well-designed process workflow is crucial for the business to manage operational risk, meet fiduciary and regulatory requirements.

Sustainability: Mining companies have to address an increasing list of demands from a wide range of stakeholders to be, not only profitable and productive, but also responsible and sustainable. Miners are focusing on efficiencies by streamlining business processes.

Compliance: Mining sites possess unique challenges and risks in the areas of safety and security. Keys and asset control policies are critical in the mining environment. It is heavily regulated, and operators must be 100% compliant to ensure high security and safety levels, minimising consequences and mitigate vulnerability which could lead to significant penalties and costs for the business.

Intelligent keys drive intelligent business

Traka’s intelligent key management solutions and electronic key management systems secure, manage and audit the use of every key. Traka ensures that only authorised staff are allowed access to the custom key cabinets and only then, to designated keys. The high-security key management system provides a full audit trail of who removed the key, when it was taken and when it was returned, keeping your staff accountable at all times.

Beyond securing and managing access to keys, Traka solutions can generate unique workflows that support the important processes of your business – require a secondary authorisation for master keys, pair key sets to guarantee the lockout of hazardous systems during maintenance, or set curfews which automatically send notifications to administrators, managers or users.

Managed by Traka, the key inventory you already have goes beyond being a tool to unlock a door or start a vehicle, it becomes an instrument to influence the core of your daily operations. Integrated Traka key systems have the flexibility, scalability and customisation options to benefit any size organisation.

This means improved control over critical processes to maximise their effectiveness, efficiency and safety. Beyond giving you total control over your keys and valuable assets, Traka can be a vital tool in affecting the way your facility, equipment and personnel collectively operate.

Your organisation’s assets are critical to its success and should be managed to maximise its effectiveness. Traka locker solutions provide centralised control over your important items, allowing you to determine who has access, and when.

Its integration options make administration effortless, and present unique opportunities for your assets to help drive critical processes. Asset identification options, such as RFID tagging, provide the most detailed tracking and asset usage data possible, maximising efficient day-to-day operations.

Whether you need simple, temporary storage for a single facility, or enterprise-level control over thousands of devices around the globe, Traka builds a locker solution to suit the needs of your organisation. With Traka, your assets become more secure, more functional and more valuable to your business.

It can support unlimited keys or items allowing systems to be expanded to thousands of key cabinets or locker systems across the globe that can be locally and centrally managed through a secure network.

By integrating with your existing HR, access control or other third-party platforms, Traka can extend the reach of these systems to offline openings, vehicles, electronic devices, tools, and equipment.

Gain total visibility of these assets from your central security desk and take better control over the processes that affect your bottom line.
