Newcrest has introduced a new software database designed to reduce environmental risk; improve planning, monitoring and quality control; and assist with compliance. The digital system known as EQuIS, has been introduced at Lihir, Telfer, Cadia and Melbourne.
EQuIS is being used by our Environment teams to manage environmental data for planning, quality assurance, quality control receipt, interpretation and reporting. It supports the complete environmental data workflow, including task management, field data collection, data verification and validation, reporting, graphics, and visualisation.
Previously, our sites have used different external applications, some requiring stand-alone spreadsheets and manual data input to monitor, measure and report environmental performance. Using a single source streamlines access to environmental data for external reporting requirements and trend analysis.
EQuIS will deliver end-to-end integration and enable collaboration between all our sites.
Rigorous analysis of control effectiveness monitoring also reduces risk, enabling better compliance management and timely and informed decision-making.
