19th March 2018
As part of our ongoing commitment to Health & Safety, we held a training day on Thursday 15th March 2018 for our Mine Rescue Team.
The exercise involved the team going into Jordans Mine and recovering a live casualty on a Sked stretcher. They also practiced the entrapment procedure, this is something they would do if they became trapped underground in an irrespirable atmosphere, it involves sitting down quietly and drip-feed oxygen to themselves which makes the breathing apparatus last very much longer.
In addition to this, Kelly Matthews & Danny Hilton attended a 'Working Well Together' course held by the HSE.
The awareness course covers the safe use of ladders & scaffolding, asbestos awareness, dust/silica, manual handling and fire risk assessments.
