Developed in partnership with The Queensland Mines Rescue Service (QMRS), a State Government body dedicated to coal mine emergency response. The QMRS and the largest coal industry players developed the Mine Emergency Management System (MEMS) as a mine-specific system for the management of emergency situations.  The MEMS concept has the following advantages;

  • Incident Control Team (ICT) develops the desired outcomes of the incident
  • Management by Objectives
  • Functional Management
  • It provides a system of delegation that ensures all management functions are identified & performed
  • Safety, Health and Wellbeing
  • Delegates responsibility
  • Systematic management development as incident escalates
  • Information recording and enhanced changeovers
  • Standard system of emergency management
  • Application from the smallest to the most complex incident
  • Better control of mines emergencies

MEMS ensures that all vital management and information functions are carried out and that the incident is dealt with in the most effective manner.  A mine site needs to establish or adapt the MEMS to suit its particular needs based on the following:

  • One controller
  • Functional delegation – Control, Operations, Planning and Logistics.
  • Management by objectives
  • Span of control
  • Incident action planning

The MEMS*2 boasts built-in screens designed to fit in with functional delegations so that each team can only input information within their own area. This information is displayed in a read only format in other team areas.

The Four Control teams

Control The management of the incident (direction and decision-making).
Operations The Direction of the mines resources in combating the incident (execution).
Planning The collection and analysis of incident information and the planning of response activities (options and alternatives).
Logistics The provision of facilities, services and materials required to combat the incident (resourcing).

The MEMS*2 can be sold as a standalone manual system or can be incorporated into NEXSYS.
