The GMG Functional Safety for Autonomous Equipment project group will host a workshop in Brisbane on September 19.
System safety is the application of engineering and management principles, criteria and techniques to optimize safety within the constraints of operational effectiveness, time, and cost throughout all phases of the system life cycle. Expanding the focus from functional safety to system safety will enable improved outcomes to the delivery of autonomous mining systems because:
The white paper will provide valuable context and education of system safety, its history in other industries, and the benefits it can provide in delivering safe systems balanced with a system that can be operated effectively. It will apply to:
The focus of this workshop will be to receive input on the scope document for the system safety white paper. The resulting publication will provide confidence to the industry that a system safety approach to delivering autonomous systems in mining is appropriate for the future of the industry. By sharing knowledge and input, you will be influencing the outcome and applicability of this whitepaper.
We invite everyone with an interest and experience in system safety to participate. An agenda and logistical details will be sent to all registered participants prior to the workshop.
