Heat stress management in mining, a sector highly exposed to hot climate conditions and the threats of climate change, is benefitting from the use of advanced technologies. Experts from the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists discuss the development.
Advanced technologies have penetrated areas of a mining operation beyond the much-publicised uptake of automation.
Inherent to the extreme mining conditions in Australia, large mining companies are leading the way in the use of technology to help workers manage the risks of heat stress.
