The Natural Resources sector comprises forestry, minerals, metals, mining and energy. Crews face many challenges working in isolated reaches around the world. Your job is to ensure the right safety policies are in place to protect your most valuable asset—your employees.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) in the United States has already reported 10 worker fatalities in coal, metal and nonmetal mining for the first three months of 2015. Moreover, the International Labor Organization (ILO) reports that mining remains the most hazardous occupation in the world.
Thousands of incidents occur annually that put lone workers in mining and forestry on disability. For some, sustained injuries prevent them from ever working again.
Your teams often work in remote areas of the world where satellite coverage is the only way to communicate. Working in extreme isolation, often surrounded by machinery, dangerous goods and unpredictable weather—lone workers risk being trapped, without anyone nearby to notice.
From geologists and land surveyors to loggers and miners, you are responsible for the safety of your team members who risk their lives everyday for your business, working in dangerous environments.
Do you have the right procedures in place to immediately coordinate an emergency response to your lone workers when an incident occurs?
Many organizations still use antiquated check-in procedures to ensure the ongoing safety of employees. This approach has proven it is not capable of responding fast enough, in real-time to make a difference for your lone workers.
Optimized emergency response time is at the core of Blackline Safety’s solutions. We provide all customers with the ability to quickly respond to injuries, health incidents and even animal attacks, in the shortest time possible.
In Natural Resources applications where Blackline’s technology is used, responders can be directed in real-time not only to a precise outdoor location, but the exact floor and room an employee is located if indoors.
Our technology shaves minutes, even hours, off response time, when lone workers need help—regardless of location.
