Maximising safety and efficiency in Mining Operations: The Global Mining Guidelines Group’s Short Interval Control


In the mining industry, safety and efficiency are top priorities. To help organisations achieve these goals, the Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) has developed a comprehensive approach to short interval control (SIC). We were honoured to participate in the preparation of these guidelines along with other companies and colleagues.

SIC is a management tool that helps organisations improve their performance by focusing on short, frequent intervals of time. The GMG’s SIC guidelines provide a structured approach to managing safety and productivity in mining operations, enabling organizations to identify and address issues in real-time.

The GMG’s SIC guidelines cover a wide range of areas, including safety, productivity, communication, and leadership. By following these guidelines, organisations can improve their operations, increase efficiency, and reduce the risk of accidents.

One of the key features of the GMG’s SIC guidelines is the focus on continuous improvement. By using a structured approach to identify and address issues, organisations can continuously improve their operations, leading to a safer and more efficient workplace.

Another benefit of the GMG’s SIC guidelines is the emphasis on communication. By ensuring that all stakeholders are involved in the process, organisations can increase communication and collaboration, leading to better outcomes.

The GMG’s SIC guidelines are an essential resource for anyone working in the mining industry. Whether you are a mine manager, safety professional, or operational specialist, the guidelines can help you improve your operations and achieve your goals now and start maximising safety and efficiency in your operations.
