Working underground can pose a risk to health. This can be due to the particles mined and the dust generated in the mining process or due to the fact that the worker is underground and may get trapped in an emergency event.
A medical examination should be carried out to ensure the employee is fit enough to work underground and could escape safely in an emergency, or to ensure the employee does not develop any preventable disease due to exposure to respirable particles.
We are able to offer medicals for all miners and also the Rescue mining team.
The standards applied to the Rescue team are higher than the normal miners.
