Formatted abstract
The aim of this project was to improve the capabilities of the mines rescue services to rapidly and accurately assist a mine to manage incidents at that mine. This was achieved by enhancing the tools developed under ACARP funded project C11031 – The development of a significant incident identification and evaluation system. The system included computer software that would assist in the management of resources and deployment of resources including inertisation equipment and mines rescue personnel, as well as providing assistance in decision-making and could log electronically all debriefing information. Support systems were developed and implemented that can assist the mines rescue personnel to quickly and reliably identify the location of a fire, explosion or other significant incident and promote timely and appropriate responses. The systems included decision-making assistance that assist in the rapid characterisation of incidents. The system could also be used to optimise the design and operation of mine environment-monitoring systems and assist in the training of mine personnel in emergency response. Readily available commercial products have been used to convert the procedures into suitable electronic format such as web format or e-books. A number of logic decision-making assistance programs have been evaluated.
