The purpose of the audit tool is to improve job design by providing suggested practices for reducing injury risks due to ergonomics deficiencies for: 1.) Bagging operations 2.) Haul trucks 3.) Maintenance and repair in preparation and minerals processing plants This audit tool will be provided in modules so users can tailor it to individual mine site needs.
