EMPOWERING SUSTAINABILITY AND RESILIENCE IN MINING
Managing health and safety on project sites and in remote areas carries unique challenges and requires a self-sufficient infrastructure. This includes site security and emergency medical care.
As a result of onerous work locations and complexities in the value chain, companies operating in the mining sector face extraordinary challenges compared to other industries.
One of the biggest challenges is the complexity of managing evacuations and repatriations; the geographical location and unexpected weather conditions can prevent them being carried out quickly. Given that mines are often located in very remote sites, it is extremely important to have the proper stabilisation equipment available in optimal condition. Clinical supervision (topside support), with medical specialists to assist case management and optimum treatment, is also needed.
More broadly, it is beneficial to take a risk mitigation and prevention approach by ensuring ongoing monitoring of medical cases and occupational health risks. With a strong focus on prevention, International SOS works with you to build a holistic healthcare solution that evolves with your business.
