Productivity, Awareness and Proximity Control System
WHY USE SONASAFE®?
Keeping your workforce safe and healthy is paramount. Installing SonaSafe® into your business can offset the potential dangers and costs arising from a workplace injury. The use of SonaSafe® creates behavioural change within the working environment and the stored data can be analysed to determine how to do things safer, more efficiently and achieve cost effective productivity.
WHAT IS SONASAFE®?
SonaSafe® is an intelligent and unique vehicle safety system designed in New Zealand to help protect workers around vehicles and heavy plant. It uses a blend of proven technologies to warn the vehicle operator of personnel working close to their vehicle.
HOW SONASAFE® WORKS?
Vehicles are fitted with sensors and personnel wear a personal detection unit. When someone enters a high-risk area the driver receives a warning that someone is at risk or if a predetermined zone is breached the vehicles are stopped to prevent an incident. It’s simple to say, but in practice, not easy to do… until now.
To find out more about how SonaSafe® can benefit your workplace, contact the Mine Tech team today.
There has been a significant number of incidents and fatalities involved with work baskets and EWP’s across a wide range of different industries.
There are 2 main reasons for these accidents occuring, either;
Lack of vision of what’s actually occurring by the IT/MEWP operator in relation to the work basket position to obstructions. Or;
The failure of communication of clear and concise instructions between basket workers and machinery operators.
All industries that employ these systems of work need to find a safe, innovative solution to mitigate the risk of these incidents occurring. As a part of the Hierarchy of Control, there have been a lot of Administrative Controls put in place to try and provide a remedy to this issue, we need to start looking at higher levels of control to prevent these incidents occurring such as an Engineering Control.
MTA is proud to offer an in-house designed solution in the form of an innovative radar system that will;
Indicate the working distance between the basket and surrounding rock to the IT operator in a visualised form.
Improve the communications between the basket workers and the IT Operator.
Notify both the basket worker and the IT Operator if the operating distance becomes unsafe via both audio and visual signals.

Ventilation Ducting Restriction Device
Mine Tech Australia has developed the Ventilation Bag Restriction Device “Chicken Choker” to assist workers to safely constrict vent flow into unmanned headings easily from the ground.
Made from durable and rated materials the Choker is designed to slip easily when restricting a pressurised bag and not to cause wear to the bag’s exterior.
Easy to install, adjust and released with a flick of the wrist, the Choker is a safe and cost-effective way to maximise airflow and minimise heat build-up within multi heading levels.
