    Dam safety has become a focal point of attention across India, where the World Bank is supporting an initiative to assist with rehabilitation, safety and project management.

  • Safety is no accident

    The prevention of tailings dam disasters is described as being an ambitious and challenging goal, made more difficult by the competitive, international and cyclical nature of the mining industry. Sixteen years ago ICOLD issued recommendations for change, and although tailings management has improved in some areas, the mining industry still fails to achieve a zero-failure rate. Suzanne Pritchard looks at a recent report by the United Nations Rapid Response Assessment Series, which hopes to encourage action to make zero catastrophic incidents become a reality.

  • The modern dam engineer

    Like many industries, the dam industry is influenced by both internal and external factors which can prompt change. IWP&DC was interested in finding out if such elements have affected the engineer’s working life when inspecting dams. We asked members of the industry for their own thoughts about the role of the modern dam engineer: Has this changed in recent years? Are engineers faced with increased challenges? And will this role continue to evolve?
