Abstract

Mines are large deposits of natural resources like coal and other minerals spread over thousands of acres. Most mines work for at least 20 to 30 years before closing down and beginning an environmental restoration process. The basic activities that take place during mining are: An excavator mines the ore and drops it on to the Mining haul truck and the haul truck transports the ore to the crusher. For ore transportation, the mining industry typically uses huge mining haul trucks. Our focus is on the Mining part involving the mining haul trucks where it transports the ore from the mines to the crusher.


The study is conducted mostly based off on the driver/operator. The study focussed on 3 main aspects of the operation of a mining haul truck. First, how the operator in a haul truck functions in an environment that is monotonous. Second, how does the driver react to errors, blind spots, and other vehicles present in the mine. Third, how does fatigue affect the overall performance of haul truck operators in mines. The paper also conveys suggestions from participants to solve some of the problems affecting drivers of the haul truck.
