MANGO

MANGO is an integrated QHSE software solution used by over 250,000 people across Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. It can be used to control and maintain all aspects of health and safety, quality and environmental management and for SMS Mining Services  it provides the one entry point to access to data, documentation and reporting right across our business in the QHSE area. Data input is standardized across each project with an emphasis on usefulness and accuracy; and allowing better analysis and control.

The software includes:

  • accident and incident management as well as compliance. It helps us to identify high volume and risk areas and track their root causes, linking it to the improvement module for the development of preventative measures
  • audits and inspections making compliance easier
  • reporting including charts and system statuses which allows for easier analysis to identify trends and areas of improvement
  • plant and equipment maintenance and reporting. Failure to properly track, record and maintain our plant and equipment can be detrimental to not only our bottom line but our reputation and the safety of our teams
  • documentation and risk management including health and safety. The software will help in identifying, recording and controlling risk, along with the regular checking of identified risk controls
  • a legal register, QHSE business and planning manuals and full document control ensuring the right employees are using the correct and current versions.
