Indonesia’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) participate in their first international mines rescue competition in Perth, Western Australia.
Emergency response planning is designed to minimise harm to personnel, the community and the surrounding environment. Removing personnel through evacuation is not always possible.
Lundin Mining improved their safety education program by repurposing an out-of-operation safe refuge to provide on-site training.
Large scale operations can have thousands of personnel on-site during each shift. Permanent or fixed refuge chambers provide a dual purpose solution.
Understanding what it feels like to be inside a refuge chamber can improve the response of entrapped personnel.
How long should a refuge chamber run for in stand-alone mode? Safe haven or refuge chamber duration should be determined on a risk-based approach.
Emergency communication systems in tunnelling are used to distribute information and instructions, manage emergency response personnel and plans, and initiate evacuation.
Safety is paramount in any tunnelling project. Trusted tunnelling safety initiatives safeguard against accidents and emergencies.
Emergency Response Team uses refuge chamber training to better prepare and provide all employees with well-maintained and hazard ready chambers.
