Rio Tinto

Rio Tinto

Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Management System

Rio Tinto is one of the world's leading mining and exploration companies. Wherever it operates, health and safety is the first priority. For Rio Tinto it is also important that the environmental effects of its activities are kept to a minimum and that local communities benefit as much as possible from operations.

Dialog developed a web-based Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management System for Rio Tinto. The system integrates the existing document management system, external links and various internal information websites into a single integrated HSEQ website. The website allows for corporate as well as localised content and is maintained by Rio Tinto document managers.

Rio Tinto HSEQ


The system was developed by a team of Dialog’s consultants based in Perth using

  • C#.Net and ASP.Net
  • AJAX
  • SQL Server
  • MyGeneration
  • TortoiseSVN


A workshop involving all key stakeholders was held at the outset of the project to clarify Rio Tinto’s requirements which Dialog’s technicians then translated into a visual interactive prototype.

The project comprised a single main development cycle with some modules being developed in parallel to accommodate interdependencies. After the initial development cycle an initial release was made to key users for testing and review. The test ready application was then deployed for user acceptance testing (UAT) during which time user and technical documentation was written. Feedback from the UAT was incorporated and a final release was deployed and handed over together with the relevant documentation.


The project was implemented successfully and the live system serves as a single point of access for HSEQ information for Rio Tinto Australia. The system is being considered for use by international divisions of Rio Tinto.
