"Remember Wilberg" is a documentary produced by UTA's Department of Art and Art History about a December 1984 fire at the Wilberg Mine in Emery County, Utah. The fire killed 27 coal miners. The documentary took more than two years to produce. While it honors the victims of the disaster, it will also be used as a safety training tool for coal miners. A $1.3 million federal grant that was awarded to UTA's Division of Enterprise Development funded the project.

No matter who you are, or where you live in Australia, extreme weather, floods and bushfires have been lasting reminders of the vulnerability of society in the face of natural or man-made disasters. While Australia has a range of systems and resources in place to respond to hazards the ability of a community to bounce back relies on how quickly local businesses recover. "Bouncing back means being better prepared, and being better prepared is not something you can do on your own." Effective preparation means connecting with others - and Volunteering Queensland can help you do this with Business Roundtable EXTEND. http://emergencyvolunteering.com.au/brte --------------------------- You can also find us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/volunteeringqld Twitter: https://twitter.com/volunteeringqld Instagram: https://instagram.com/volunteeringqld

Pike River Coal Mine disaster illustrates the growth in outsourcing to contractors, whose employment status has been transformed from that of an employee working on a full-time basis to a contracted worker employed in often dangerous, insecure work with little or no control over their health or safety. Dr. Felicity Lamm discusses these trends and provides insight to how we can ensure the safety and support of contracted workers.
At about 11:05 a.m. on 16th July, 1986 an explosion in Moura No. 4 underground mine in central queensland. The 12 miners who were extracting pillars in the main dips section were killed. Their bodies were recovered on 23rd July, 1986 after an extensive recovery operation.

Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking.

10/12/10 Accidents in the 3rd World mines are common, but 1st World tragedies are extremely rare. Following the Pike River mine disaster in New Zealand which claimed the lives of 29 miners, questions are starting to be asked. How could such an accident have occurred in a modern sophisticated mine? Miner Brent Forrester used to work at Pike River Coal. He was right at the pit face but quit the job before the disaster. His close mate Riki Keane is still down the mine - one of the victims of the massive explosion which killed the 29. Angry and sad, Brent claims that this catastrophe was 100% preventable. Speaking out for the first time he voices the concerns and issues he had working at the mine. Whilst in a separate interview CEO Peter Whittal responds to the claims made by Brent Forrester.

Brisbane, Australia, Jan 14, 2011 / 12:51 am (CNA/EWTN News).- As floodwaters begin to recede in the urban center of Brisbane and other submerged areas, Catholic charities and churches throughout Queensland expect it will take years to recover fully from the worst flooding in the Australian state's history. The first priority is to provide shelter and other accommodations for evacuees throughout the second-largest and third most-populated area of Australia, which is larger than Texas and California combined. During the deluge's third week, on Jan. 11, Queensland Premier Anna Bligh declared three-quarters of her state to be a disaster area-- including the city of Brisbane, which is home to almost 2 million people. The Auxiliary Bishop of Brisbane, Rev. Brian Finnigan, told the Archdiocese of Sydney's Catholic Communications office that parishes and schools throughout the Archdiocese of Brisbane were "opening their doors to assist those affected." Other church ministries, however, were in a position of waiting for relief rather than offering it. "Our central archdiocesan office is closed," the auxiliary bishop noted, "and we have no power, no lifts and no lights." According to local clergy, many individuals are exhibiting a generous spirit of helping others cope with the disaster while dealing with its impact themselves. Fr. John Conway, a priest of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, is the administrator of three parishes in the southeastern Queensland city of Toowoomba. He said that flood victims throughout the archdiocese were "reaching out even in the midst of their own crises." "Many places still have no drinking water," he said. "We can't get fuel, milk, bread. We're basically rationing everything." Nevertheless, he said, "I've seen people who have been evacuated from their homes working in emergency centres." The St. Vincent de Paul Society, Australia's major Catholic charity, is providing substantial assistance to Queenslanders facing the loss of their homes and livelihoods. Its "flood appeal" has dramatically increased in scope, as the water swept through rural areas and reached Brisbane's urban center. That charity is also in a position of simultaneously coping with the disaster and helping others do so. Some of its own facilities are submerged, leaving clothing and other resources ruined beneath the muddy waters. Because of damage to roads and other infrastructure, the charitable society is not able to ship out goods to many areas, though it is transferring funds for relief. Brian Moore, the President of St. Vincent de Paul in Queensland, announced on Jan. 13 that the charity had formed a flood relief committee. "We are appealing for money ... to give concrete support to those affected," he said. Once the water subsides, he said, the society would "be there for months meeting the needs of people." He described the human impact of the floods --which have killed at least 19 people and left 61 missing, as "heart wrenching." In Brisbane alone, more than 25,000 homes may be left uninhabitable, while damage to Queensland's rural areas could take a toll on its agriculture and mining industries for years to come.

Keynote speaker Dr. Anton Treuer closes out Inver Hills Community College's Student/Faculty Conference. This year's theme was Flourishing in a World of Disasters. In this talk Dr. Treuer discusses some of the disasters visited upon American Indians, as well as how the effects of those disasters continue to linger even today. What makes this talk so powerful is that it does not simply attempt to lay blame, rather, Dr. Treuer offers possible solutions for growth and the possibility of authentic global flourishing. (NOTE: the camera needed reset every 30 minutes, which is why there are three "two second" breaks. NO content was lost in those, and the battery died right as Dr. Treuer cited Chris Rock and how racist does one have to be to turn down a day off of work just because it celebrates a black person. The talk ended right after that, so nothing of import was lost.) Thank you to all that helped make this happen!

Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most DANGEROUS Jobs In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/fAK5uLs4UC4 Watch our "DANGEROUS Animals In Australia!" video here: https://youtu.be/NKFzu0Gw8kY Watch our "Most LUXURIOUS Prisons In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/BhFoWYBlJ8Y 10. Warehouse Workers Warehouses are used to store virtually anything you can think of, so it’s hardly a surprise that with lax safety laws the buildings can prove to be quite dangerous. In 2015, for example, an accident at a warehouse owned by Rui Hai International Logistics had tragic consequences. A fire started to rage through one of the buildings where the company was storing illegal quantities of sodium cyanide, which is an extremely toxic and volatile chemical, alongside hundreds of tons of flammable fertilizers and other industrial toxins. Firefighters responding to the blaze sprayed water on the flames, which contributed to further explosions- 2 of which were powerful enough to register as earthquakes, and led to fires raging for days that spewed out nasty, toxic fumes. By the time things were under control, 145 people had lost their lives and more than 700 had been injured- not to mention the environmental catastrophe that followed. Thousands of dead fish surfaced in the nearby river. The lack of rules and regulations in regards to warehouse storage means that no one really knows for sure what is kept within the containers. Workers will often move around hazardous chemicals without the proper safety equipment or protection. They might not even know they are at risk. 9. Law Enforcement Law enforcement can be a dangerous job no matter where you are. They are responsible for keeping citizens safe and ensuring that everyone keeps to the rules. But those involved with law enforcement around the world are not always the most popular of people- and in China it’s an incredibly dangerous job. According to recent statistics, over the past 8 years, at least every day, one Chinese police officer dies and 9 are injured. This is about twice the number of those in the US. The majority of these deaths are as a result of cardiac related issues, with a third of them being from assaults, and the rest being related to traffic incidents. There’s another type of worker in China’s law enforcement system, known as a Chengguan, that is responsible for enforcing bylaws to do with things like the environment and sanitation. They have a bad reputation for being corrupt, and are often thought of as no more than thugs- so the general public react with a great deal of anger when they feel they are acting beyond their power. This has led to a number of confrontations, including one Chengguan who was stabbed repeatedly while onlookers stood by without helping, and another who was struck in the head by a gardening tool. 8. Electrical Maintenance Workers While rules of safety at work are improving in China, they still have a long way to go. Electrical maintenance is one of the riskiest jobs in the world, period. Even more so in China. and you really need to have nerves of steel to work on maintaining power cables. As infrastructure grows and development continues to expand, the authorities are building a vast network of utility provision- including the 350 million dollar ultra high voltage power transmission line in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the northwest of the country. Pictures emerged a couple of years ago of exactly what the workers were required to do while installing the 700 transmission towers, some of which were 12,300 feet high. It seems more like a role for a circus high-wire performer than a typical construction worker and, with no more than a safety hat and a harness, they walk out along long stretches of cable to attach the different pieces together. If you have a fear of heights, or a fear of dying, you need not apply. 7. Medical Staff Medical staff are usually respected around the world although sometimes it can be frustrating if they don’t have that personal touch. Their whole purpose of being to to take care of people who are sick or injured, but medical staff in China face challenges far more extreme than their peers around the rest of the world. They are on the front line, and feel the brunt of people’s displeasure when things don’t turn out how they expect. Patients become frustrated when their consultations last a few minutes after having waited in line for hours, and they lash out towards the medical professionals. Well, I mean, we’ve all been there.

A blast at a coal mine in the rebel-controlled Donesk in eastern Ukraine has killed at least 32 people, according to a local official. Dozens of other miners are believed to be trapped one kilometre deep underground inside the Zasyadko mine. The cause of the blast was not immediately clear, however mine officials said it was not linked to fighting at the nearby frontline between pro-Russian rebels and Ukraine government forces. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said rescue workers ha… READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2015/03/04/dozens-trapped-after-zasyadko-coal-mine-blast-in-donetsk-ukraine What are the top stories today?

A disaster in the making - here we have a glaring example of the fact that no thought was given to the consequences of all the produced brine and water that is associated with the coal seam gas industry as it dewaters and depressurises aquifers in order to access the gas. Between 2015 and Feb 2016 a leak (or leaks) occurred in the liner of one of QGC's toxic Concentrated Brine Evaporation Ponds at their reverse osmosis plant near Chinchilla. This potentially disastrous leak was not reported to the Government until many months later in late April 2016. These huge toxic ponds not only sit on top Gilgai country (melon hole country) but they were also built on top of Strategic Agricultural Land, and are surrounded by many waterways including Nine Mile and Wieambilla Creeks. These creeks feed into the impacted (and bubbling) Condamine River. These creeks are the veins of the region. The [leaking] Orana 3 Evaporation Pond holds 1040 million litres of concentrated brine. This brine contains high levels of heavy metals, salts and silica. To date, the industry has no means for disposal of the brine. Worryingly, the unconventional gas industry is in it's infancy in Queensland, with no solution for the disposal of or ability to process the many millions and millions of tonnes of salts and brine that it is producing. This is an ill thought out, ecodisaster in the making. Between February and late April the 1040 million litres of concentrated brine disappeared from the leaking pond, it couldn't have been pumped into the adjoining brine ponds as they were full. This beggars the question.... Where did QGC put this huge amount of salt/brine? Where did 1040 million litres of toxic brine and salts disappear to? These ponds are a ticking time bomb. They literally hold the blood of the land beneath them. They hold the blood of the land that should remain in the ground to sustain the natural order... our rivers, our farmers bores and our creeks and springs. Their contents are hazardous to our land and aquatic systems. John Jenkyn and his family live 3km downwind from these toxic white elephants. Multinationals are plundering dewatering and depressurising aquifers for short term gain. At what cost to our nation. At what cost to the long-term future of Australia? Our country deserves far better than this. What will we leave our children? Wake Up Australia. Footage by Max Phillips Soundtrack by Ben Sound Royalty Free Music
