Infuse location intelligence into daily operations to optimize risk management and overcome logistical challenges. Efficiently collect and monitor data such as reseeding efforts; bond release schedules; spill prevention, control, and countermeasure (SPCC) tank inspections; and vendor backfilling operations. Once tracked, ArcGIS supports data sharing throughout a mining organization for seamless communication and record keeping—crucial elements of optimal environmental, health, and safety standards.

Strengthen health, safety, and environmental strategies

Environmental monitoring

Visualize spatial environmental monitoring data for air quality, groundwater, and more. Explore historical trends in sampling data to identify potential issues while maintaining a comprehensive and reliable system of record to ensure environmental regulatory compliance.

In mining operations, converting pen-and-paper-based inspection workflows to digital forms is essential for time savings and accurate reporting. By visualizing and monitoring inspection data, mining staff reduce risk and ensure environmental compliance. Automated report creation, email notifications, and alerts lead to efficient record keeping and quick response times.
