Risk Analysis by Using Failure Mode and Effects Analysis for Safe Mining

N. Pavan Kumar [2]


Abstract: For any Organization or Industry to be successful, it has to meet the Production requirements and also need to maintain the Health and Safety standards for all concerned and has to identify the hazards, evaluate the related risks and bring them to tolerable level on a continuous basis. As the mining industry is explicitly complex because of the extent and range of the mining operations, due to this large number of hazards that can pose a potential risk to health and safety. To protect the mining personnel and machinery from these hazards, there is need for Risk Analysis for sustainable operation of the projects, Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a widely used technique to identify the potential failure modes for measuring reliability of a product or a process. In this paper, review of literature on Hazards and Risk Analysis by using FMEA, in mining industry has been discussed.
