You are invited to participate in a survey focused on prioritizing collaboration around Reliability Best Practices and Benchmarking. If you’re not the correct person within your organization, please pass this invitation to the appropriate person. Survey deadline is October 31.

The Reliability Working Group (RWG) of the Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Group is an operator focused group whose purpose is to promote knowledge and best practices sharing related to reliability in a mining context.

Within the mandate of the group is to identify leading reliability and maintenance practices, and collaborate to develop best practice guidelines to be shared through the GMSG.

Best practices are those that industry leaders have developed to achieve superior performance. The collaborative approach to development of best practices enables participants in the process to accelerate the identification of leading practices and contribute to development of best practice industry guidelines.

The purpose of this survey is to identify priority topics for benchmarking and best practice sharing. The topics identified will establish the focus for the Reliability Working Group for the next year.

The sharing of practices will take place through facilitated targeted best practices workshops and on-line sharing and / or teleconferences.
