The lifecycle of mining consists of exploration, mine development, mine operation, decommissioning and land rehabilitation. Increasingly Regulators are imposing tighter health and safety and Environmental requirements on mine operators. These impact small operators as they do not have the internal safety resources available to the 'big players'. ASI Safety can help you manage the requirements under the new mine safety regulations.
