Tunnelling Webinar – The Daub Paper

Tunnelling Webinar: The Daub Paper 20th March 2024 – 11.00–12.30 GMT

Mr Heinz Ehrbar of Heinz Ehrbar Partners will be presenting the next IMIA Webinar – see details below

Construction is fundamentally a risky process in which both hazards and opportunities can materialize. This applies in particular to underground construction, where partial ignorance of the existing conditions implies constant uncertainty and thus opens up constant scope for the occurrence of events arising from risks. With the present recommendation, the DAUB intends to make a significant contribution to the implementation of an integrated project risk management for underground structures. This recommendation cannot and does not intend to present any ready-made “recipes”, but rather to offer assistance as a general recommendation for action in the project-specific development of one’s own approach to risk management. Experience has shown that the boundary conditions of underground mining projects are too heterogeneous to allow a general approach to be developed for all applications.
