Risk Management in
Blasting Operations

Jeff Taylor, Sauls Seismic, LLC
Blasting is considered an "ultra-hazardous" activity from a legal perspective,
and is often the most misunderstood,
intrusive and troubling aspect of mining
to local communities. Risk management
for blasting is primarily reduced to two
factors, namely miner safety and liability
protection issues. This session addresses
recent serious injuries and fatalities from
a mining safety perspective; and also

reviews procedural errors that commonly
lead to lost or settled frivolous damage
lawsuits from alleged vibration damages.
You'll hear recommendations for proactive measures that companies with blasting operations should incorporate into
standard operating procedures, which
have proven to improve miner safety
and reduce liability in the mining and
explosives industry.

trends the highway sector is facing. This
presentation will provide insights into
some of the industry's complex business
challenges and will highlight what contractors of the future should be doing.

Executive-Level Reporting
and the Role of Data in the
Aggregates Industry

Alton Hudson and
Michael Southon, Trimble
Technology is beginning to replace more
traditional ways of reporting and sharing
information, but does that necessarily
make for a better way to do business?
This presentation uses case studies to
demonstrate how digital information
and reporting systems are changing
how work gets done in the aggregates
industry. Significant pushes that are
changing operations today will be examined, from how paper forms and data
entry are being replaced with digital
reporting systems, to the rise of equipment monitoring systems and shared
information platforms. We will discuss
both how these new ways of handling
information can affect operations in
the day-to-day, through reduced data

entry, improved information accuracy
and real-time notifications, to how that
same information can be used to improve
visibility at the executive level to drive
more effective decision making.

Bob Archibald, Ami Gignac and

lower accident rates, improved morale,
and improved profitability. This session
will explore the four keys to shifting
culture developed from our experiences

leaders. Effective communication is the
foundation to making this shift, and
