In sum, the above outlines that many incidents and accidents are due to equipment design inadequacies, in either maintainability or operability, and are therefore theoretically preventable. 2 The beginning of the Earth Moving Equipment Safety Round Table (EMESRT) Mining companies around the world have struggled with the need to ensure that earth-moving equipment is designed to be operated and maintained under all site conditions without causing harm to people. Designing haul trucks for safer operations and maintenance is therefore a major objective in managing a protected, efficient, and thereby competitive workplace.

Performance and safety aspects) would be gathered together both before and at several points after employing human factors principles in the equipment design process, and a comparison could be made to assess how successful the intervention was. If an identical piece of equipment existed that did not Chapter two: Equipment design 25 have any human factors input, then this could be of additional use as a baseline. Also, if multiple cases of human factors CBA for different types of ­equipment existed, then this would further strengthen things.

A case study about mobile equipment is outlined at the end of the chapter; this helps to bring together many of the concepts introduced. Chapter 3 presents the other side of the situation, and shows why design is not the only issue: mine site rules, procedures, work methods, guidelines, and similar topics also have significant impacts upon mining equipment safety and efficiency. As with Chapter 2, several key concepts such as “Haddon’s matrix” are introduced and illustrated in this chapter. Chapter 4 is the beginning of the more specific human factors content.
