A video has been released of Volvo's self-driving truck undergoing testing in an underground mine for the first time.
Research to improve safety and risks to surrounding areas by controlling nitrogen dioxide levels during mine blasting is now underway at Murdoch University.
The Industrial Scientific Ventis Pro Series Multi-Gas Monitors, which include the Pro4 and Pro5 models, are lightweight wearable instruments that workers can keep at their sides to safely detect gases in their working environments.
Sitting for a good part of your day? Maybe you exercise before or after work? New research shows this may not be enough.
Almost 100 injuries have been recorded since 2009 due to roof bolting in underground mines. A report authorised by NSW Mine Safety on this safety issue is now available.
Not all employers and operators understand what constitutes a 'confined space', nor the dangers associated with working in such environments. The following article has been written to provide an overview of confined space operations in layman's terms and should not be seen as a substitute for taking correct professional advice — nor for certificated training.
Scientists in Korea have developed wearable, graphene-coated fabrics that can detect dangerous gases in the air by alerting the wearer with an LED light.
Confined spaces are some of the most dangerous environments to work in. The risk of entrapment coupled with lack of oxygen, potential exposure to hazardous material or poisonous gases can often make undertaking a rescue challenging.
The bulletin contains a general description on how the MSA's gas detectors with XCell Pulse technology can be used to improve the efficiency of bump tests.
Taking advantage of methane that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere provides Australian businesses with an untapped fuel resource and opportunity to minimise their carbon footprint, according to scientific research and designers Draco Scientific.
FLIR Systems has introduced three thermal cameras for optical gas detection: the FLIR G300a, G300pt and A6604. These cameras are suitable for monitoring gas pipelines and installations from safe distances.
The Tango TX1 Single Gas Monitor features DualSense technology that is claimed to improve worker safety, regardless of bump test frequency, while reducing overall maintenance costs.
