Formatted abstract
This report describes research that developed and trialled the Operability and Maintainability Analysis Technique (OMAT) for large haul trucks operating at surface mines. OMAT was developed to help identify, prioritize and eliminate or mitigate any potential safety issues found in new and current earth moving equipment, specifically through the application of human factors engineering. The project concentrated on developing the OMAT method, and then evaluating it with mine site users and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

This report is in two parts: the first part describes the method used to develop the OMAT technique. This process included reviewing related literature/techniques, trialling the technique at two operational sites and making modifications to the draft technique as required.

The second part of this report is a full OMAT process description, to enable the use of the Operability and Maintainability Analysis Technique by various parties. It contains an introduction and explanation about the OMAT process and descriptions on the six steps to be undertaken to complete the OMAT tool.
