An emergency is a serious, unexpected, and potentially dangerous situation that requires immediate action. Your mine will have written policies and procedures in place to guide the actions of everyone on site during common emergencies that involve equipment damage, personal injury, and fire. These procedures may include instruction on warning methods, emergency communication, evacuation, and reporting. Emergency procedures specific to your mine should be covered in detail during your orientation training and may be reviewed during periodic or annual refresher training.
