4 min read

The purpose of the Handbook of Training in Mine Rescue and Recovery Operations is to provide a guide for the training of the members of mine rescue teams in the care and use of apparatus for protection in irrespirable atmospheres, in the detection of noxious gases, specialized emergency response equipment, and in general knowledge of accepted procedures for rescue and recovery operations during or after a mine emergency. It is meant to serve as a reference guide for the members of mine rescue teams and to assist mine operators during mine rescues or other emergencies.

The two primary functions of the province’s mine rescue program are responding to mine emergencies and preparing mines for an emergency. This applies to the underground and surface workings of operating mines, mines in development, and sites in the process of mine closure.
In the event of a mine emergency, Ontario Mine Rescue must:

  • Ensure the affected mine and emergency response District is sufficiently resourced to conduct an emergency response operation
  • Make technical rescue advisory services available to mine operations management for the duration of the emergency response operation
  • Ensure rescue and extrication equipment stored on site is deployed
  • Ensure rescue and extrication equipment shared within the emergency response District is mobilized to the site
  • Activate neighbouring emergency response District to standby additional resources
  • Prepare and retain a permanent legal record of all operations and communications from the time of notification to the conclusion of mine rescue and recovery operations In preparation for mine emergency response operations, Ontario Mine Rescue must:
  • Train and evaluate a sufficient roster of actively certified mine rescue volunteers

  • Train mine operations management with respect to site personnel responsibilities and decision making in various mine emergency scenarios
  • Ensure provincewide standardization of the mine rescue program by conducting an annual evaluation of all mine
  • operators in response to a standard emergency response simulation
  • Establish procedures for the safe deployment and return of mine rescue volunteer response personnel
  • Actively review global mine rescue incidents, as well as participate in research and development advancements in mine emergency response policy and technology
  • Maintain a Mine Rescue Station centrally located within an emergency response District of regionally grouped mine sites
  • Ensure the provincewide response capacity at all times through the audit process and annual site point-in-time evaluations
  • Prepare and retain records of all training, consulting and financial reports pertaining to the administration of the mine rescue program.

These reports must be made available to the MLTSD for an annual review to ensure the program is being administered as required under the terms of the Service Level and Transfer Payment Agreements.
