Health and safety
Safety is the key driver for mining automation. It is about removing people from hazardous areas to a safer environment. Fewer people in the production area mean less risk taken. Meanwhile, the ore bodies can be effectively utilized, thereby minimizing potential loss.
With AutoMine™, Sandvik's mine automation system, operators are able to work in the surface control room, which eliminates noise, vibrations and dust. In extreme conditions, the operator may be located far away from the mine site, thus eliminating fly-in fly-out procedures.
Mining is one of the most hazardous industries in the world. With AutoMine™ we help to provide a safer workplace. Our aim is zero harm.
