Waste and inefficiency can eat up profits at mining operations on even the richest and most accessible of deposits. Successful mine operators understand that the most productive and profitable operations are those that also place a premium on efficiency.
Here are three tips to increase efficiency in your operation.
Develop a culture of continuous improvement
No matter how efficient an operation is, there is always room for improvement. Develop a workplace culture where staff are recognised for identifying inefficiencies and finding ways of making your operation run more smoothly,
Always put safety first
Quicker isn’t always better. A productivity gain that saves your operation time but risk the safety and wellbeing of staff is likely to cost you in the long term. Unplanned stoppages caused by accidents and incidents will hurt staff morale and profitability.
New technologies are constantly evolving. Keep abreast of change and embrace sustainable solutions that consider the environment, the health and safety of staff and the long-term viability of your operation.
