Guide Tunnelling (Australia): Specific Hazards, Risks and Control Measures – Shaft Sinking Mobile App
Shaft sinking involves excavating a shaft from the top with entry and spoil removal from the top.
How does it work?
Entry to the shaft is by ladder or hoist or other mechanical means. Alternative entry should be provided for use in an emergency. For deep shafts a winder with its own power supply should be considered. Control measures should be implemented to eliminate or minimise, so far as is reasonably practicable, the risks associated with shaft sinking.
