“First Aid In The Mining Industry” - Do not let the title fool you! This instructional video on First Aid was filmed on mine sites, however, it is valuable in all aspects of First Aid. Although this is not a certification video, its quality and content are second to none. We have chosen real-life scenarios to educate you, the viewer, on topics such as First Aid, Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Secondary Cardiac Arrest, AEDs, Control of Bleeding, Electrocution, Poison Control, Burns, and Emotional Considerations. If you are needing a quick, easy-to-view safety video, as a refresher between certifications, this is the video for you.”

This video is the trailer for the upcoming "We are Miners" video which will be released in a few months. It is intended to enlighten and educate the general public on the importance of mining in our everyday lives. In addition, we would like to install a sense of pride and self-worth within the mining industry. The video showcases the important impact miners have given the materials they help make available. Literally, their fingerprints are everywhere!
