Vehicle interaction

In safety, one size doesn't fit all – safe ways of working are built shift by shift, day by day and over time.

Transport and mobile equipment accidents accounted for 30 per cent of fatalities at ICMM operated mines in 2018, the highest cause of fatalities at our member operations.

Safe working conditions are a fundamental human right and ICMM members are determined to eliminate collision related fatalities in mining operations.

Strengthening operational capacity

ICMM members commit to continually improve health and safety performance. This requires leadership, investment and an unwavering commitment to the goal of zero fatalities. As part of ICMM’s collaborative Innovation for Cleaner, Safer Vehicles (ICSV) initiative, members are working in partnership with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to promote collision avoidance technology capable of eliminating fatalities from vehicle interactions to be available to mining companies by 2025. However, technology is not a silver bullet to eliminate collisions, operating discipline is a prerequisite.

To help drive thinking and action within companies to make this a reality, the ICSV initiative has developed a Maturity Framework. This tool helps companies to map, motivate and measure progress against the ambitions.

Using the framework to evaluate maturity

To support companies in evaluating their maturity ICMM hosted a webinar with the Earth Moving Equipment Safety Round Table (EMESRT).

Also available is a guide for using the VI Maturity Framework, which can be downloaded here. For supporting case studies or other technical documents related to the Maturity Framework visit our new Knowledge Hub.
