The Ontario Mining Association will be hosting a series of workshops in Sudbury from Nov. 20-21.
As a follow-up to 2018's risk assessment series, this second series is designed to give managers or second-line and middle managers a deeper understanding of risk associated with working underground.
Last year, the OMA held four successful sessions in Sudbury, Timmins, Thunder Bay and Windsor.
This year, the sessions will be led by returning trainer Glenn Lyle, director of health and safety at MIRARCO.
Day one will focus on an introduction and background to risk assessment types and applications, the risk management journey, and the role of line management.
Day two will focus on the role of the second-line supervisor in risk management.
In a press release, the OMA said that “these workshops are a continuation of the ongoing work that the OMA is doing to improve the health and safety management system in Ontario mining.”
The series will be held at Workplace Safety North on 235 Cedar Street in Sudbury. It is sponsored by Workplace Safety North and Vale.
There is an enrollment fee of $100 per participant for the two days. Register for the event here.
