Mine shaft inspection

Shaft Inspector Training

Case Study: Improve shaft inspection knowledge among shaft inspection personnel and shaft supervisors

Requirements: Our customer required a customized course to train a variety of new and experienced shaft inspectors on two different types of shafts they regularly have to inspect and maintain at the site.

The customer had a high turn over in their shaft maintenance personnel which resulted in a loss of valuable shaft inspection information. This information is typically acquired through many years of experience.

The shaft inspection training had three main objectives:

  1. To provide an evaluation of the skills of the personnel assigned to the inspection of the shaft(s)
  2. To provide an evaluation of the condition of the shaft and maintenance practices
  3. To provide information and training to be used by the inspectors to upgrade their inspection skills

This course included classroom instruction combined with hands on evaluations during a “typical” shaft inspection through one of the mine’s shaft compartments.

Hoist Plant Inspection

Case Study: Provide mechanical and electrical inspection for five hoisting plants at one site

Requirements: Supply mechanical and electrical hoist plant inspection including NDT of critical components on multiple hoist plants at a single site.

A number of different hoist plants are inspected for mechanical and electrical deficiencies based on local codes and regulations. These inspections cover non destructive testing (NDT) of critical components in the hoisting plant and welds on the hoist itself. Running tests are also performed to ensure the hoist and brake control systems adhere to the local Labour regulations. Deceleration tests are completed to determine if the Emergency Stops for the hoist satisfy the rates established in the regulations.

A detailed report is provided with all items that were found during the hoist plant inspection and then an action plan is setup to address these items with site.
