Introduction to Site Inspections


Most minesites have an “Introduction to Site” process which must be followed before equipment is allowed on site.  This will generally be for hire equipment, contractor equipment or new equipment for the mine.  The “Introduction to Site” process looks at the various items that the equipment must comply with.

Depending on the equipment being inspected, the following items may be addressed

  • Operator Protection

  • Electrical installation – AS3000 and autoelectrical
  • Access and Egress including walkways, handrails and stairs.
  • Hydraulic and Pneumatic systems.
