Safety & Environment

Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia is totally committed to the prevention of incidents and injuries, and protecting the health and safety of all persons in the workplace. Additionally we have industry experts and trained professionals for the safe handling, fitting and management of off-the-road tyres and wheels.

Our approach to safer tyre and wheel handling includes:

  • Implementing effective risk management systems which are relevant and suitable for the organisation’s risk exposure
  • Using specialist well maintained and specially designed tyre and wheel handling equipment
  • Identifying, monitoring and complying with all applicable health and safety laws, regulations, codes of practice, standards and other requirements
  • Maintaining relevant and continually improved policies, procedures, systems, information, training, recognition programs, and organisational structures to support and communicate effective health and safety practices
  • Continuous training in safe tyre and wheel handling procedures for our staff, contractors and customers

Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia provides a comprehensive series of training programs – in our specialist training facilities – covering all aspects of tyre and wheel use and management. These include:

• How to carry out safe tyre handling procedures and practices

• How to optimise tyre selection, based on site requirements

• How to maximise tyre life in specific applications.

Comprehensive training is the key to correct and safe tyre and wheel handling, and is a major part of the services Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia offers the industry as a whole.

Our aim is to make information available to anyone associated with tyres and wheels on OTR equipment – supervisors, operators, foremen and fitters – to ensure they are fully equipped to safely manage, select and handle tyres and wheels.

BMSA will implement and maintain these systems inclusive of policies and procedures. These objectives are monitored regularly to ensure their integrity and effectiveness to facilitate continuous improvement.
