Health and safety in mineral exploration SOLD OUT

The field-oriented health and safety (H&S) course has now run successfully for seven years and has constantly adjusted to participant comments to address key concerns of people running exploration field programs. These adjustments to the course material will continue as ideas in H&S evolve over time.

The objective of the course is to give participants sufficient training that they can understand the typical risks are 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 an H&S program, and given one existing at their company they will understand better what a H&S program is attempting to achieve. Speakers include seasoned experts in H&S from exploration, management, drill company and aviation (helicopters).
