Transcripts - Mitigational measures for Mines

  • 1. Impact and Mitigation Measures in Operational Mines Sachin Kumar Sinha M.Tech-Environment Patna
  • 2. Air Pollution Control through: • Dust suppression system • Wet drilling • Dust extraction and filtration system during drilling • Dry fog system and Atomized water spray in crushing plant • Dust encapsulation system conveyors • Regular monitoring of ambient air, emissions from vehicle and other machineries.
  • 3. • Optimum charge of explosives • Construction of pucca haul roads • Water Sprinklers- Sprinkling of water by fixed sprinkling post on permanent roads • Sprinkling of water on other haul roads & transport roads and loading/unloading and transfer points. • Development of green belt including low height shrubs to arrest dust on the haul roads.
  • 4. Noise Pollution control through: • Providing ear plug/muffs to workers. • Audiometric test of workers annually. • Monitoring of noise level around working areas • Acoustic enclosure for DG and other machineries • Green belt development during the construction & development period around infrastructure & OB dumps. • Relocation of the population during developmental stage. • No habitation within 1-2 km of the mine.
  • 5. Water Pollution control through: • Comprehensive water management plan • Construction of proper storm drains & settling ponds • Maintanance of drain line • Rain water harvesting structure • Effluent & Sewage treatment plant • Retaining walls, garland drain and siltation ponds to prevent washing-off of OB • Regular monitoring of water & waste water
  • 6. • Early stabilization of external dumps. • Construction of garland drains and toe walls while starting the external dumping. • Construction of garland drains around surface edge of quarry. • Construction of bunds in the garland drains to catch & retain silt & fines from dumps. • Construction of storm water drains around CHP, coal stock yard, workshop etc. • Settling pits in ETP and bunds in drains shall be regularly desilted.
  • 7. • The embankment against nala shall be stone pitched specially on nalla side and stabilized with grass on in bye side.
  • 8. Safety • Proper design of benches, roads and dumps as per statute. • Strict implementation of all statuary provisions while working in different parts of mines. • Module wise Training to all workers as per schedule. • Functioning of A Safety Committee. • Implementation of Risk Management Process . • Provision of all type of safety & protective equipment & ensuring their proper use. • Fire Fighting & Fire Retardants near all equipment & other necessary places like Crusher plant, Stores, Workshop etc. • Mock Drills for testing preparedness in case of a demanding emergency situation.
  • 9. • All workers and operators are checked for any traces of intoxication before being allowed to work. • Checking of driving license and fitness of all vehicles before allowed entering into mines. • Checking the road worthiness of all vehicles entering into the mines. • Ensuring proper maintenance of all Vehicles and Machinery . • Provision of proper maintenance shade for safe maintenance. • Energy isolation during maintenance, cleaning & lubrication of moving parts. • Proper Earthing for all electrical equipments & regular testing of the effectiveness , Lightening Arrestors wherever deemed necessary. • Speed Limits for all moving vehicles. • Signboards , Safety Boards , Caution Signs at all important locations & Instruction Boards near crucial equipments
  • 10. Health • Initial & Periodic Medical Examination of all workers as per statute. • In addition arrangement of periodic health camp in mines. • Provision of well equipped accommodations including canteen facility, drinking water through R.O system & recreation facilities. • Provision of Ambulance of all staffs & villagers. • Water sprinkling & dry fog arrangement to stop generation & propagation of dust. • Periodic scientific monitoring of vibration , noise, air & water within the parameters.
