One of the most serious hazards in underground mines is a rockfall. This video aims to equip all underground mine workers with a sound understanding of ground control concepts, thus enabling workers to identify potential rockfall hazards and to take appropriate action to “secure the ground”.

Personnel from the five sponsoring companies all had input into the development of this training tool. The video promotes a holistic approach to securing the ground. Topics include:

  1. The mining cycle and rockfall hazard identification
    2. Scaling – manual and mechanised
    3. Reinforcement and support concepts – spot bolting, split set, anchor bolts, mesh and shotcrete
