Mines Rescue Training

Mines RescuePurpose 

The training reflects the role of response and rescue team members who work in a mine site  and perform tasks involving a broad range of skilled applications applied in a wide variety of contexts. People performing these roles may be required to exercise some discretion and judgement in selecting equipment and services and deal with contingencies. The course is delivered by training professionals who are experienced emergency services personnel and can be tailored to meet your specific workplace requirements for mines rescue.

When danger strikes, a speedy and safe rescue effort can mean the difference between life and death for trapped miners. Adequate training is essential, as rescuers must be available and ready to respond on a moment’s notice.

The Mine Act requires that every operator of an underground mine assure the availability of mine rescue teams for purposes of emergency rescue and recovery of trapped or injured miners. Rescue teams must receive adequate training in accordance with 30 CFR Part 49.8 for underground metal and nonmetal mines, and 30 CFR Part 49.18 for underground coal mines. Mine rescue contests and simulations are an essential part of the training process, and ensure that teams receive hands-on exposure to a range of potential hazards and mine emergency scenarios.
