Health & safety for mineral exploration - SOLD OUT

The objective of the course is to give participants sufficient training in understanding what the typical risks are in mineral exploration, how to run a simple risk assessment, an introduction to accident root cause analysis, as well as the gathering and use of H&S statistics and some emphasis on the special higher risks associated with drilling (accidents) and helicopters (fatalities). For the more experienced participants, they will understand what a company should have in place to implement effective, high level H&S practices from the Board level to operations.

Participants will have enough information to start a health and safety (H&S) program, and given one existing at their company, they will understand better what a H&S program is attempting to achieve. The course is suitable for people with a range of experience levels. Speakers include seasoned experts in H&S from exploration, management, drilling and aviation (helicopters).
