Pro-Visual Publishing is now distributing its annual Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2019/20 in partnership with the Australian Mines and Metals Association and the Minerals Industry Safety and Health Centre.
This year’s free of charge guide focuses on safety issues pertinent to the industry today, including work health and safety regulations, roads and other vehicle operating areas, health monitoring in mining, and first aid.
The mining industry has the third highest fatality rate of any industry, with an average of nine deaths per year.
In a bid to help reduce workplace accidents, the poster-style guide is designed for display in accessible areas that are visible to employees. It complements safety meetings and toolbox talks, and can be referred to on a consistent basis to reiterate the importance of safety.
Since 2016, the guide has featured an interactive augmented reality (AR) component, which aims to enhance user engagement.
By downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app and scanning over the AR-capable content, quarrying and mining employees can access additional safety information on their smart devices, such as animations and web links.
“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2019/20. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge,” Pro-Visual Publishing CEO John Hutchings said.
