Human Factors in Risk Management for the Mining Industry
RISKmap is an innovative company that provides risk management training and risk awareness training services to the mining industry.
With offices in all mining global regions, including the US, Canada, Australia, Chile, Brazil, Guatemala and South Africa, RISKmap consultants can provide immediate support for your risk management needs.
Behavioural safety and risk management for the mining industry
The focus of our work is on creating risk competency in your business through training, risk tools and risk management techniques. We are the only consultants that combine human factors, behavioural safety and risk management.
Risk management is the foundation of all good management and comprises three core processes: risk identification, risk analysis and risk mitigation.
The application of these processes can only be effective if the people who apply them are skilled and trained to do so. There are different skills required at different job levels: at senior level we need strategic risk management focus, at middle management level we need a good understanding of risk management techniques to analyse risk, and at operator level we need the application of the right tools to identify and report risks.
