MIRARCO Mining Innovation, in partnership with CROSH, partnered with the Ontario Mining Association’s Safety and Training sub-committee to undertake the cataloguing of Ontario Mining Association members’ response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The primary goals were to highlight and share best practices.
CROSH member Amanda Dodaro played a key role in developing this report as part of her internship with MIRARCO Mining Innovation.
This document can be used in three ways. First, as a reference for mining companies to incorporate a range of controls for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Second, it is valuable to capture actions taken, improvements made, and lessons learned should these measures be required again in the future. Lastly, Ontario Mining are leaders in safety management; given that the hazards are not restricted to a specific industry, the knowledge developed by OMA could be instructive for other industries and institutions and as such, should be shared broadly.
