Newmont Mining has selected ApplyIT’s IntelliPERMIT software for its Boddington gold mine in Australia, to tighten and streamline safety procedures.

IntelliPERMIT, the computerised permit-to-work system, will control the process by which permits within an operating plant are prepared, authorised, issued and managed at the mine.

The system will consistently identify hazards, required isolations and personal protective equipment needs for miners, the company said.

It will also alert miners of the risks present and provide measures to mitigate them at the mine, which has an operating life of 20 years.

IntelliPERMIT has also replaced the processing plant’s paper permit system.
