Mine Safety Workshop - Disaster Management, Jakarta, Indonesia, October 2011

The underground mining environment is hazardous and prone to several disasters including fire, roof collapse, inundation, gas leakage etc. It not only puts the life of the miners in peril but also causes extensive damage to the equipment, valuable resources and the environment. Inundation of Chasnala mines in which a large number of miners lost their lives and fire in large areas of Jharia coalfields where vast resources are burnt (and thus making a severe dent in the economy and the environment) are but some of the examples of how precious life and resources are lost in disasters in mines. World over, various technologies are being developed to mitigate these disasters but it needs to be debated whether there can be a single solution to address all these disasters.

In view of this, NEOEDGE is bringing to you another of our premier course “Mine Safety Workshop – Disaster Management” to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 03 to 05 October 2011.

Ably led by:

This 3 Day intensive workshop will draw on new concepts in Mine Site Health and Safety, and prepare you to scenarios in the event of such unforeseen circumstances.

With severe natural disasters striking mines across Australia in 2010 and 2011, including cyclones, floods and fires, it has become crucial to proactively plan for catastrophes to ensure that your mine site is equipped to withstand potential events as efficiently as possible.

During this interactive workshop you will take away:
Engaging in historical case studies and the far-reaching implications that can arise across the mine site
Tools to identify and utilise crucial data sources to ensure early awareness of potential issues
How to develop a Targeted Action Response Plan for an individual mine site
How to proactively manage catastrophes to minimise damage and protect onsite assets
An understanding of the judicial process of overcoming the effects of a natural disaster
Discuss some of the major disasters around the World and lessons learned from those disaster events
