Expert Interview with Christo de Klerk, Mines Rescue Services South Africa
 
07:46
Christo de Klerk, General Manager of Mines Rescue Services in South Africa, reports on the significance of deep mining on mines rescue during the IMRB Conference (October 2013, Canada). According to de Klerk, South Africa has the deepest mine worldwide with around at 4 kilometers depth. Currently, the mine operators prepare themselves to mine at 5 km depth. That brings on new challenges for miners and mines rescue teams - the established recue concepts have their limits and higher temperatures and longer distances need to be considered. In South Africa, mines very often hire unskilled people to work underground so the safety devices they carry need to be easy to don and to operate. According to their escape strategy, it is important that a refuge chamber is available where they can wait for help in the case of emergency. For generations, Christo de Klerk and his family have been passionate about mines rescue: "The passion to save lives but also the property of the mines." The Dräger expert interview series also includes talks with Ian Cooper, Manager Health & Safety at Hudbay Minerals in Canada; Radoslaw Stach, Mining Area Manager at KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. in Poland and Wolfgang Roehl, Manager Statutory Accident Insurance at Central Mines Rescue Organization in Germany.

Expert Interview with Ian Cooper, Health and Safety Manager at Hudbay Minerals
 
06:11
Ian Cooper, Health and Safety Manager at Hudbay Minerals in Canada, reports on the significance of deep mining on mines rescue during the IMRB Conference (October 2013, Canada). The limiting factors such as long distances, tight timeframes and high temperatures have a direct effect on possible rescue concepts. Additionally, there are issues with the stability of the ground at that level. The rescue concept from Hudbay Minerals contains both permanent and portable refuge stations. More than 40 years ago, Ian Cooper began his career as a member of the first-aid team in England's mines. Coming to Canada, he was asked to be part of the mines rescue, what he considers "a great honor".

Suppose there is fire underground and the shaft is damaged, how would workers come out (from) underground? I think the lesson is that we need to put safety (at) number one in planning and make sure that at all times, people can be saved quickly." 8. Mineworkers standing around entrance to mine shaft STORYLINE: About 3,000 gold miners were trapped a mile underground on Wednesday when falling pipe damaged the elevator. However the company began rescuing workers through a smaller shaft and estimated it would take 10 hours to get them all out. Early on Thursday morning, a company official said about 350 miners had been evacuated from the mine so far. There were no injuries and there was no immediate danger to any of the workers in Harmony Gold Mining Company's Elandsrand Mine, company and union officials said. Patrice Motsepe, the Chairman of Harmony Gold Mining Company told reporters that a number of miners had already been rescued and "the process of bring the rest out the mine is proceeding successfully." The miners were trapped at a level slightly more than a mile underground when a hydraulic pressure pipe blew out at a weld. The accident happened at 6:20 a.m (0420 GMT). Officials said by 4:15 a.m. (0215 GMT) about 350 miners had been evacuated from the mine. A regional chairman for the union, said there was ventilation for the miners still waiting underground and officials were in contact with the men by a telephone line in the mine. The official confirmed that the trapped miners were in good condition but were hungry, angry and frustrated with the situation. Senzeni Zokwana, the president of the National Union of Mineworkers, said the accident should be a wake-up call for the industry. "I think the lesson is that we need to put safety (at) number one in planning and make sure that at all times, people can be saved quickly," said Zokwana. A spokesman for the union charged that the mine was not properly maintained - but Harmony executives dismissed union criticism saying the shaft was in very good condition with a lot of new infrastructure. According to a government Mine Health and Safety Council report in September, 199 mineworkers died in accidents, mostly rock falls over the past year. South Africa is the world's largest producer of gold as well as a number of other minerals. Harmony's Elandsrand mine is the third largest producing gold mine in South Africa - the company said it produces an average of about 600 kilogrammes (1320 pounds) of gold every month.

Tilt down striking mine worker, removing his helmet wiping his brow, and mimicking digging with a shovel 11. Cutaway of dancing mine worker STORYLINE: Thousands of striking miners protested in Johannesburg on Tuesday, over safety and working conditions in South African mines - where officials estimate one miner dies nearly every day. Around 40-thousand miners joined the colourful march on the Chamber of Mines, in South Africa's capital on Tuesday, many singing and holding brightly coloured banners in support of the Union. "The stronger the Union, safer the workplace," one banner read. One striking miner told AP Television "every year there are fatalities, every year." The one day strike was called by the 270-thousand member National Union of Mineworkers to draw attention to safety concerns in a country where the rate of deaths among miners underground is increasing. Many miners were transported in from rural areas by bus, according to the employer's organisation that includes industry leaders AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, Harmony Gold, Anglo Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin. The miners were expected to present Chamber officials with a memorandum outlining their health and safety concerns during the march. South African President, Thabo Mbeki, has ordered that all mines undergo safety audits and around 50 mines were shut down by the government in one week, recently, due to unsafe working conditions. Chamber officials did not comment on the strike directly, but pointed to a joint statement released last week, after a meeting with the National Union of Mineworkers. The two sides agreed at the meeting the protest strike would be on a "no work, no pay basis." The statement acknowledged "there is much to be done to drastically reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on the mines." In October, 3,200 miners from Harmony Gold, were trapped more than a mile underground for two days after a pressurised air pipe exploded. The miners escaped unscathed, but the accident brought international attention to South Africa's mine safety issues. As of the end of September, some 226 miners had been killed on the job, the mineworkers' union said, compared to 199 in all of 2006. The problems, compounded by the country having the deepest mines in the world, often are seen as a hangover from the former white apartheid regime, which was seen as unconcerned about the safety, poor pay and dire living conditions of black miners.

SOUTH AFRICA: ORKNEY: GOLD MINE ACCIDENT 56 BODIES RECOVERED
 
02:14
English/Nat Searchers have now retrieved 56 bodies from the wreckage of a gold mine accident in Orkney, South Africa. The mine's owners, Anglo American, said no-one had survived the disaster and the country's most powerful union has accused them of gross negligence. By late Friday, searchers working 2,300 metres (1.4 miles) underground had pulled more than 56 bodies from a gold mine elevator that plunged down a shaft late on Wednesday night. The mine confirmed that there were no survivors among at least 100 gold miners in the two-floor elevator carriage that fell 500 yards (meters) after a locomotive dropped on it. The bodies of the miners had been recovered by rescue teams that cut into the smashed carriage. Almost 50 more were believed to still be in the wreckage. Workers wearing face masks and rubber gloves carried blanket-wrapped bodies on stretchers from a shaft elevator to waiting ambulances. Many workers at the mine came from neighboring countries or far away regions of South Africa, and the company said the switchboard was jammed with calls from relatives inquiring about their loved ones. Only a few of the 56 bodies recovered so far have been identified. The accident occurred when a mine locomotive went into a tunnel closed to locomotive traffic, broke through safety barriers and plunged down the shaft. It landed on an elevator carriage full of workers finishing the night shift, snapping the cable to send the carriage crashing to the bottom of the shaft. Officials said government investigators had questioned the driver of the locomotive, who was not in the vehicle when it fell into the shaft. President Nelson Mandela declared a day of mourning next week and promised speedy action on an upcoming government report on mine safety. Addressing a press conference later on Friday the most powerful trade union federation in South Africa slammed the mine's owners. SOUNDBITE: 'The blame should be placed before the mine bosses. And secondly we are saying that we don't believe that it was the first time that there has been a breach of health and safety. It's only that this time the result was tragic.' SUPER CAPTION: Sam Shilowa, General Secretary C.O.S.A.T.U. (Congress of South Africa Trade Union) South Africa is the world's leading gold producer and has some of the deepest mines. Accidents occur frequently and usually cause fatalities. SOUNDBITE: 'The key focus is that the sort of things were supposed to have been in place were not there and I think the mine bosses should be able to explain to us how come this sort of thing has been happening. SUPER CAPTION: Sam Shilowa, General Secretary C.O.S.A.T.U. (Congress of South Africa Trade Union) However, Anglo American has remained mum on possible causes of the tragedy. The driver of the deadly locomotive was apparently heavily sedated in hospital and the press were not allowed to speak to him. Anglo American regional manager Dick Fischer did speak to the press however - updating the progress being made with the rescue operation. SOUNDBITE: 'There is certainly no chance of any survivors. As we said yesterday, the bottom deck was most badly damaged. We have taken all of the remains of the people out of the top deck - it is completely empty and we have made the first cut into the bottom deck. We have taken four stretchers out of the bottom deck. ' SUPERCAPTION: Dick Fischer, Regional Manager, Anglo- American It is clear that the bodies in the lower deck of the cage have been mangled beyond recognition as grisly parcels not resembling any human form were brought to the surface. The nation's worst mining disaster occurred in 1960, when 437 workers were killed when trapped underground in a coal mine south of Johannesburg.

South Africa - Miners March
 
02:55
Thousands of mineworkers marched on the Department of Mineral and Energy Affairs in Johannesburg on Saturday morning (16/7), demanding an improvement in safety conditions at work. At the front of the march, organised by the National Union of Mineworkers, were scores of disabled miners in wheelchairs. They were pushed by colleagues in central Johannesburg, to the department offices in Braamfontein. Most had been paralysed in mining accidents and several had lost one or more limbs. Others hobbled on crutches and walking sticks. The march took place on the eve of a Government-appointed commission of inquiry into the health and safety regulations in the mining industry. According to union figures, black mineworkers who spend 20 years underground face a 1 in 30 chance of being killed in a mining accident, and a 1 in 2 chance of being permanently disabled. Last year, 578 mineworkers died in mine accidents. A total of 8532 were seriously injured last year. Meanwhile, South Africa's largest labour federation demanded on Saturday that President Nelson Mandela's government back workers in disputes with employers acording to a Sunday Times report. Sam Shilowa, leader of the 1.2 million-strong Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), made his plea as the country faces its largest strike since the all-race elections in April.
