At Goldcorp, we’re proud to have highly trained Mine Rescue and Surface Emergency Response Teams at our mining operations, ready for any emergency that might arise. Thankfully, these rarely occur; but at the same time, how can response teams stay at the top of their game if they’re hardly ever activated?
Highlights from this year’s Mine Rescue Summit in Reno, Nevada.
It had all the drama of a real-life rescue: emergency crews responding to fires, administering first aid and pulling victims from crashed vehicles.
However, what unfolded in the Nevada desert in June was a well-executed training exercise for Goldcorp employees - one that was about more than just preparing to protect each other in the event of a real emergency.
