The field oriented health and safety (H&S) course has now run successfully for six years and has constantly adjusted to participant comments to address key concerns of people running exploration field programs.

The objective of the course is to give participants sufficient training in order to understand the typical risks in mineral exploration, how to run a simple risk assessment, an introduction to accident root cause analysis, the gathering and use of H&S statistics, and some emphasis on the special higher risks associated with drilling (accidents) and helicopters (fatalities). The participants will have enough information to start a health and safety (H&S) program, and if there is one existing at their company they will understand better what a H&S program is attempting to achieve. The course is suitable for all experience levels. Speakers include seasoned experts in H&S from exploration, management, drill company and aviation (helicopters). The course is run as a mix of lectures with breakouts on exercises that illustrate H&S techniques.
