Tyre Failure – Risk and Response

Carrying out routine tyre maintenance on mining equipment is the single most likely event to cause a fatality in an Australian mine. The statistics prove tyre maintenance is often a difficult, dangerous and hazardous task.

This session will demonstrate the enormous amounts of energy that are released in a tyre explosion and highlight the relevant controls, why we need to have these in place to prevent such events occurring, and how such preventative measures have failed in the past.

To demonstrate these points a scenario will be enacted that provides an opportunity for both a coal and a metalliferous-based rescue team to demonstrate an emergency response to a catastrophic tyre failure.
