APT can provide qualified and certified staff to facilitate your Risk Assessments, as well as provide staff with relevant industry experience to sit in and participate in the risk assessment process.

APT will provide a detailed and concise report for any facilitated assessment, ready for review and audit. Reports will reference all applicable Australian Standards and Mine Design Guidelines (MDG’s).

The report will include assessment on the machine structure, hydraulic system, grease & lubrication system, electrical system, radio system, transportation, commissioning, maintenance, de-commissioning, disposal and operation – or any other areas as applicable.
