Our 3 stage assessment and consulting process
How we work with you to identify your specific dust control challenges and recommend the most effective solutions.
Stage 1: Your Needs Analysis
First, we identify your needs by conducting a thorough site assessment. This can involve subsequent site-specific lab testing – in a NATA-accredited laboratory – and encompasses things such as soil and water analysis, product-mix designs, failure tests, wind tunnel simulation and more. We then present you with a tailored engineering solution complete with specific project costs, features and benefits.
Stage 2: Implementation
This involves the timely manufacturing and supply of products. We have an in-house bulk transport capability to optimise costs and efficiency of product delivery to remote sites. As part of a turnkey solution, we can provide all, or some plant and equipment – plus personnel – as well as complete or partial systems to ensure quality outcomes. For example, complete Safety Management Plans for full-service operations or just Safe Operating Procedures on how to apply products in accordance with best practice. We can also supply training for your team members to ensure effective implementation of systems and on-going success.
Stage 3: Monitoring and Reporting
This is positive proof of the effectiveness of Dust-A-Side Australia’s products and systems. Our team of engineering and technical experts provide continual monitoring to ensure that all performance targets are being met and the on-going management program is optimised. Includes use of technologies such as:
- Mobile dust monitoring – to provide ‘live’ comparisons of wheel generated dust on treated and untreated sections of road, as well as static monitoring in close proximity to dust sources.
- DASMetrics – a live internet-based software system that provides a visualisation of the road network, allowing users to record defects, schedule remediation works and identify the true value of an improved haul road
- Telemetry – live online access to product stock levels and historical usage, as well as the ability to create automated reports and alarms
We’re flexible with how we deliver our services and products. Choose the right delivery package that best fits your scope of work and how your site operates.
In addition to having a full time project supervisor on site, Dust-A-Side can also supply clients with required assets and personnel such as trucks, water carts, graders, suppression equipment and operators. Telemetry, consulting, project management and reporting are available with a Full Service package.
A full time project supervisor from Dust-A-Side will attend site to oversee the delivery and implementation of all dust control solutions, utilising the clients existing assets (e.g. water carts). The project supervisor will provide further support through telemetry, consulting, project management and reporting in order to help clients achieve the most efficient and cost effective outcomes possible
One of our project supervisors can visit your site at agreed upon times in order to provide telemetry, consulting and reporting. We’ll evaluate the effectiveness of the solutions and products we’ve provided and make recommendations to improve efficiency.
Binder products can be supplied in bulk or via intermediate bulk containers. Dust-A-Side will advise clients on how much of the product to apply and how often. Clients then apply the products using their own equipment.
Dust control equipment such as fog cannons can be rented as required and clients can manage the operation of the equipment.
We are proud to present an array of practical and innovative solutions.
