Health & Safety

It was recognised prior to works commencing that the abandoned mine workings were a very dangerous environment.

Working closely with the Mines Inspectorate and the Council's Mine Manager, Scott Wilson Mining, a safe system of working was devised and implemented to protect the workforce. Safety was given the number one priority and the workforce was carefully selected to provide a highly skilled and experienced team for working in these conditions. The close proximity of the public to any surface works was also considered and methodologies were developed to minimise the risk of any impact to the community.
