The Emergency Response and Rescue Management in Mining event aims to provide the mining community with practical presentations on improving preparedness and responsiveness for mining site emergencies including those triggered by natural disasters or extreme weather. The forum will draw on leading and award winning case presentations from the mining industry, demonstrating how to increase site resilience to protect people and assets, effectively reduce incident management, and improve leadership, coordination and control during emergencies. Perth is hosting our Emergency Response and Rescue Management in Mining Conference which features exemplary case studies from leading underground and surface mines located within WA. Feedback from delegates who have attended our Resources Workforce and Safety Events and recent mining industry research has requested the event be in Perth to cover emergency issues unique to WA mines. The timing of the event coincides with the need for the mining industry to revise their emergency management plans to ensure they are complying with new national and specifically WA state safety and hazard management harmonization requirements. Miners grappling with improving site resilience in remote areas with an unprecedented increase in natural disasters will value sharing practical information with industry fellows who rarely have the opportunity to get together in a pivotal forum.
