Abstract Haulage and transport accidents are the second largest category of accidents in South African mines. The South African Mines Health and Safety Act (MHSA) requires employers to prepare and implement a code of practice (COP) on any matter affecting the safety and health of employees. These COPs must comply with official guidelines. This document has been compiled to assist employers in the mining industry to prepare a COP for improving safety and health in connection with trackless mobile machinery. Contents include: legal aspects; format and content of the mandatory COP; COP implementation plan.
