Date: Tuesday 28 June 2022
Start: 9:30am AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time)
Location: Online Via Zoom
The Slope Stability for Operators workshop has been designed to provide participants with foundational knowledge and geotechnical awareness skills to recognise and minimise the potential risk associated with slope instability and rock falls. The potential for rockfalls and slope failures makes working near quarry walls, stockpiles and dump faces a hazardous task. As quarries develop over time, they usually get deeper and the overall slope angle becomes steeper which can increase the risk of rockfalls. Stockpiles and waste dumps contain unconsolidated material which can be subject to collapse.
The course will cover:
- Causes of slope instability
- Signs of slope instability
- How to control slope instability
- Consequences of slope failure
- Slope geometry terminology
- A working understanding of the causes of instability in soils and rocks in quarries.
- The ability to identify the different types of slope failure.
- An understanding of the measures used to control slope instability.
- Awareness of the consequences of slope failure.
Who should attend
The course is particularly relevant to:
- Quarry Operators
- Quarry Supervisors
