FREMONT, CA: Modular Mining Systems, a provider of information management solutions for mining operations, demonstrates its ongoing commitment to operator safety with the release of the new MineAlert Safety Management Tools.

Modular firmly believes that technology can play an integral role in helping mines reduce the number operator-involved safety incidents. While no single approach can mitigate all safety risk, the MineAlert toolkit brings together the company’s field-proven, safety-related technologies into a cohesive suite, with a focus on the following high-risk areas: Fatigue Management; Proximity Awareness; Predictive Collision Detection; and Speed Monitoring.

Besides this, the suite supports Modular’s multi-layered, holistic approach to safety management by addressing the issues of: Operator Competency; Situational Awareness; Compliance to Mine Best Practices; Equipment Performance and Control.

The company also focuses on providing mines with the same level of reliability and accuracy they have come to expect from Modular products. As evidence of this commitment, some components of the MineAlert Safety Management Tools have been designed to meet Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 standards, as determined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
