A new white paper by Mitrefinch Australia focusses on the issues surrounding workforce time and attendance within the mining industry, and their impact on efficiency and productivity.
Mining is big business in Australia with the industry employing 2.2 per cent of the total labour force and contributing about 5.6 per cent of GDP. Australia is also the world’s largest coal exporter and third largest iron exporter, and has a quarter of the world’s proven, estimated uranium reserves. Mineral exports alone account for around 35 per cent of Australia’s exports.
With so much at stake, it is important for mining companies to have control over the entire gamut of issues including data capture, mobile workforce, job costing, absence management, workplace health and safety, and fatigue management.
The Mitrefinch Australia White Paper titled ‘Workforce Time and Attendance in the Mining Industry’ examines each issue and its implications, and recommends a comprehensive suite of workforce management solutions that can be customised to the specific needs of the individual mining company, helping them maximise efficiency, productivity and profitability within their operations.
