WOMBATT: A Game-Changer in Fatigue Prediction and Management

Top 10 Mining Safety Solution Companies - 2020

With roots that date back to the first industrial revolution, the mining sector is perhaps one of the oldest vertical that has witnessed ages of transformations. However, what remains poignant throughout all these years is the lack of safety measures. Companies in the mining sector are still risk-averse. But, with rapid advances in technology, some companies are on the verge of changing this narrative. From drones and advanced modeling techniques, creating sub-terrain images and maps of areas beyond human reach to automated vehicles avoiding collisions, technology is guiding mining companies to strengthen their safety. For instance, the effective use of 3D modeling technology and drones expands the area of coverage of exploration work. These images provide a prior intimation of danger and life threats in unchartered and potentially unsafe underground areas. Also, AI-based smart computers and sensors with laser power options improve operational efficiency. The laser sensors detect disaster-prone spots and safeguard miners' lives from toxic gas emissions, landslides, and more. To add, companies are also leveraging blockchain to undermine the illegal mining activities that are otherwise difficult to detect.

In the wake of such drastic transitions, we have compiled this issue of Metals and Mining Review in order to assist mining companies in the task of finding accomplished solution providers and service/consulting companies that bolster their safety concerns. In this edition, we have listed the top 10 mining safety solution providers 2020 and top 10 mining safety consulting/services companies 2020 to highlight the companies that can escalate the chances of your growth. Equipped with innovative technological capabilities, these enlisted solution providers and consulting/services companies are transforming the safety issues and measures at the cloverleaf of various disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine comprises insights from subject-matter experts, CIOs, and CXOs in the metals and mining sector on the latest industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and highlights their expertise. We hope this issue of Metals and Mining Review helps you build the partnership you and your organization need to foster an environment driven by robust and efficient technology. We present to you Metals and Mining Review’s “Top 10 Mining Safety Solution Providers - 2020.”
