Our Experience With Cristal Mining

Fast Facts

  • Full-time Emergency Response Trainer/ Emergency Services Coordinator Role in Central NSW
  • Trained over 500 learners across all fire, safety and emergency response training courses
  • We took the hassle out of emergency response and provide a full-time capability

Fire & Safety Australia (FSA) has been working with Cristal mining for over 2 years. During that time we’ve run confined space training, height safety training and emergency response team training. Cristal mining (previously Bemax resources) owns and operates 2 mineral sands mines which are approximately 220km from Broken Hill.

After working with Cristal mining for 12 months, the site was formulating a new emergency response team, obtaining new emergency response equipment and developing updated emergency response procedures. FSA suggested contracting a permanent Emergency Response Trainer/Coordinator on a 8:6 roster to ensure a high level of emergency planning, preparedness, training and response. Our services included the following:

  • Conduct fire, safety, first aid, height safety and confined space safety training through our RTO (22250)
  • Schedule, structure and conduct Cert III Mines Rescue training and up skill the onsite volunteer ERT (Including
  • Vertical Rescue Training, Road Accident Rescue Training, Fire Team training and Confined space rescue training)
  • Mentor and lead the ERT through their ongoing development and emergency incident response
  • Write site ERT procedures and response protocols
  • Act as a mine site safety officer when one of the safety team are absent
  • Conduct procurement duties for the safety team (including vehicle, PPE and ERT equipment)
  • Conduct emergency response preparedness training, exercises and drills.

We have partnered with Cristal mining and saved them tens of thousands of dollars by providing a one-stop solution for their remote site emergency response training and coordination of requirements.
