Description / Abstract:

This Standard provides information and specifies requirements for the management of risks associated with remote control mining equipment in underground coal mines. It covers issues related to work system design, equipment operation and maintenance, personnel and the environment in which the equipment is operated.

NOTE: Technical requirements for the design of remote control equipment are given in AS/NZS 4240.1, Remote control systems for mining equipment—Part 1: Design, construction, testing, installation and commissioning.

This Standard applies to the following equipment:

(a) Continuous miners (including roadheaders, bolter miners, sump miners and the like).

(b) Shearers.

(c) Mobile roof supports [breaker line supports (BLS)].

(d) Mobile roof bolters.

(e) Continuous haulage systems.

(f) Breaker feeders.

(g) Load haul dump vehicles (LHDs).

(h) Shearer carriers.

(i) Shuttle cars.

(j) Longwall pump station movers.

The Standard covers the use of the equipment throughout its life cycle, including arrival at the mine, transport underground, installation, commission, operation, maintenance and repair, and transport from the mine. It also encompasses both on board and off board modes of operation.

This Standard does not apply to the following equipment; however, it may be used to assist in the management of risks associated with these types of equipment:

(i) Cranes.

(ii) Shaft and drift winders.

(iii) Special purpose equipment.

(iv) Fixed conveyor systems.

(v) Automatic vehicle guidance systems.

(vi) SCADA and remote stop/start stations, e.g. remote closing of high voltage circuit breakers.

(vii) Longwall roof support.
