This presentation will be of interest to anyone who has to assess the potential for catastrophic failures at surface or underground mines, design ground control management plans or regulate those who develop them. The presentation notes the types of risk associated with ground engineering in both surface and underground mining and presents data showing the significant improvements in the health and safety performance of the Australian mining industry since the move to a risk management approach for controlling hazards in the workplace. These improvements have been particularly pronounced in the area of ground control. Nevertheless, major incidents and near hits still occur from time to time. The presentation explores the nature of these incidents and the learnings from them as a basis for going on to discuss the characterization of geotechnical risk, how this risk can be managed and opportunities for improvement in ground control management plans.
