Formatted Abstract/Summary
RISKGATE, an initiative of the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP), is an interactive online risk management system developed for the Australian coal mining industry to assist in the management of priority unwanted events. Utilising an expert knowledge-base assembled in action research workshops with industry specialists and supported by academic and technological resources, RISKGATE generates substantive and leading edge controls to assist industry stakeholders alike in the design, management and reporting of organisational and regulatory compliance requirements. In 2011, information systems were developed for TYRES, FIRES, ISOLATION, STRATA CONTROL – UNDERGROUND, GROUND CONTROL OPEN CUT, and COLLISIONS. In 2012, the team are working on EXPLOSIONS, EXPLOSIVES, MANUAL TASKS, and TRIPS/SLIPS/FALLS. From a broader industry perspective, RISKGATE provides an environment for knowledge capture and knowledge exchange to drive innovation and best practice in risk identification, assessment and management in the coal industry. This digital platform offers utility for assembly and delivery of risk management know-how across many sectors, including construction, transportation, utilities or heavy industry.
