Will Your Mine Shelters Meet the New BCA Cyclone Rules?
The northern regions of Australia have always been prone to cyclones, mainly influenced by variations in the El Niòo- Southern Oscillation, as well as the fact that the Indian and Pacific oceans generate ideal temperatures for Cyclones to form (26.5 degrees or higher).
While there’s no evidence to suggest that cyclones are becoming more frequent, recent predictions from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) indicate that Australia’s cyclones are becoming more intense, bringing increased rainfall and wind-speeds.
With many of Australia’s biggest mining regions being located in remote, cyclone-prone areas, ensuring that mine-site infrastructure and shelters are cyclone-proof is a growing concern which must be addressed.
