Enabling secure and efficient mining
October 2017, Mining (Industry), Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Security Services & Risk Management
Mining is a high-value industry with long-term return on investment. Initial capital investment is substantial and it can take years from exploration to market-ready product.
There are specific drivers that define what mines require to ensure they manage their costs as well as safety and security. These include minimising production downtime from plant, process failure and accidents, accurately reporting hours worked to improve efficiency or reduce downtime, minimising downtime due to incidents (people, assets, electricity, water, fuel etc.) and minimising bottlenecks to the flow of people and resources. Then they also need to comply with legislation, company policy, union requirements and best practices in terms of health & safety, fatigue, duty of care, exposure and more.
From a security perspective, mines also need to ensure the mine is secured from illegal or unauthorised access to the mine itself and other sensitive areas within the operation. Gallagher offers solutions to many of these requirements.
Starting at the perimeter, the company offers perimeter and access control solutions which can be integrated for better decision making. This can include integration with external data sources such as HR, CMS, LMS or databases. It also provides non-lethal electric fencing or non-electrified detection capabilities (supporting a mine’s duty of care).
Integration with CCTV, time and attendance, and HR systems using the company’s APIs and EDI options is also available for broader and more comprehensive coverage. While mustering or evacuation management is included in the solutions available to ensure that all employees, contractors and visitors are accounted for in case of an emergency.
More than 500 mining and resource sites across the world trust Gallagher’s solutions to meet the challenges posed by complex work and security environments.
