Event Detail

The Mining Health Safety and Prevention Review released its final report on April 15, 2015.  Over the course of 15 months, the Review studied the state of health and safety in Ontario mines.  The result of this work were 18
recommendations designed to get miners home safe. These recommendations were clustered in the 6 themes of the Review, the capacity of the mining health and safety system to meet the needs of the mining sector, training, emergency plans and mine rescue, the Internal Responsibility System, hazard identification and mitigation, and new technology/management of change processes.

The Director of the Review will provide an overview of the Review process.  The facilitators of the 6 working groups dedicated to the themes of the Review will provide an overview of their work and the Review’s recommendations relating to their themes.
