The Fatigue Risk Assessment is conducted utilizing the Beyond Midnight Fatigue Risk Assessment Tool, which encompasses Australian State and Territory Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes on fatigue management. The organisation supplies all relevant documentation regarding roster and shift arrangements, travel & commuting, camp facilities if used, health & wellness programs and other relevant information. A site visit and workshop further investigates documented strategies against current occurrences and procedures. A report identifies fatigue risk and the current status of control, recommends further controls and provides notes on how to implement the controls listed. Contact us to find out more.
In 2016 Phu Bia Mining engaged Dr Nick Mabbott through Beyond Midnight Consulting to review the fatigue management practices of its haulage operations in Laos. Phu Bia Mining own and operate a haulage fleet of 58 Volvo FMX 480 trucks in Laos. This fleet of over 200 drivers operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and travels in excess of 11 million kilometers each year.
Managing fatigue has always been challenging, especially in a developing country. Dr Mabbott’s review of our fatigue management practices was excellent. He provided us with a detailed report complete with numerous recommendations that we were able to tailor to meet our operational needs. We have been very pleased with the services provided by Dr Mabbott and Beyond Midnight Consulting and would not hesitate to use their services again if required.
