Slope Stability | Online Workshop

The Slope Stability workshop has been designed to provide participants with knowledge relating to geotechnical awareness skills and management strategies to minimise the potential risk associated with slope instability and rock falls.

 

 

 

DateThursday 17 February 2022

Start time9.00am - AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time)

Finish time: 4.30pm

LocationOnline Via Zoom

Workshop Overview

The potential for rockfalls and slope failures makes working near quarry walls, stockpiles and dump faces a hazardous task. As quarries develop over time, they usually get deeper and the overall slope angle becomes steeper which can increase the risk of rockfalls. Stockpiles and waste dumps contain unconsolidated material which can be subject to collapse.

Geotechnical awareness and skills to recognise and manage potential rockfall and batter collapse hazards are necessary to achieve an acceptable level of risk.  

Learning Objectives

  • A working understanding of the causes of instability in soils and rocks in quarries.
  • The ability to identify the different types of slope failure.
  • An increased awareness of inspections and risk controls in relation to excavations, overburden dumps, stockpiles and tailings dams.
  • Information on the roles and responsibilities of quarry workers for managing risks associated with geotechnical hazards.
  • Information on the requirements of Principal Hazard Ground Control Management Plans.

Who should attend

The course is particularly relevant to:

  • Quarry Managers
  • Quarry Supervisors
