A Vital Service To Mine Workers

A Vital Service To Mine Workers

Working in the mining sector obviously comes with risks. Workplace health and safety has improved immensely but the risk is still considered high compared to other jobs.

Never Take Health For Granted

A heart attack at work in October last year has taught Alan Dukes an important lesson - to never take things for granted. Not your health or a rescue helicopter service that can potentially save your life.

The 56-year-old fitter never expected he’d suffer a heart attack, let alone one at work. On October 15 last year, Alan was at work at Broadmeadow Mine, near Moranbah, loading and carrying conveyor rollers up steps and ramps. He began experiencing breathlessness and some chest pain.
