Materials handling equipment for the mining industry has shown failure rates much higher than standard static structures. The equipment comprises large moving structures with onerous load conditions compared to standard building structures. There is a strong need for owners, operators, designers, and manufacturers to adopt a proactive approach throughout the asset lifecycle, including procurement, design, manufacture, installation, and ongoing asset management and maintenance to ensure safe use of the equipment.
