Forming an important part of mining health and safety, tailings management protocol is more than just a strict adherence to technical standards. It's lives, and livelihoods.
Many industry standards require confirmation that a tailings storage facility (TSF) has implemented a system for responsible tailings management. Mines need to ensure that facilities have a formal policy in place, have developed and implemented a tailings management system (TMS), have assigned accountability, and have developed operation, maintenance and surveillance manuals, as well as procedures for all tailings impoundments.
IsoMetrix's environment, health, and safety (EHS) software has been designed according to international standards and best practices. Our EHS solution has been developed to offer mining companies a more effective and responsive way to manage their risks, including those associated with their tailings storage facilities.
Modules within IsoMetrix’s software such as Incident Management, Inspections, and Document Management allow various requirements to be tracked, managed, and reported on, empowering mining and tailings managers to run their facilities effectively and efficiently.
A best practice guide to safe and effective tailings management, according to leaders in the mining industry.
At IsoMetrix, we understand that tailings management goes beyond adherence to technical standards. When tailings storage facilities fail, the consequences pose substantial threats to the workforce, surrounding communities, and the environment. IsoMetrix interviewed tailings experts and consultants with decades of experience to publish this best practice guide to safe and effective tailings management. The guide will help you:
- Understand industry standards and how to meet them
- Identify warning signs before incidents occur
- Prevent tailings failures with data and technology
- Overcome the top five challenges Tailings Managers face
