Description:

A ministry of Labour mining inspector visits the Kidd Creek copper mine in Timmins, Ontario. He describes what happens during an inspection of underground mobile equipment, and what he is looking for to ensure that the mine is in compliance with the Occuaptinal Health and Safety Act.

These "inspector" videos use ministry inspectors, not actors. By showing what mining operations must do to be in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations, the ministry expects to achieve increased cooperation during its inspections and improved workplace health and safety in that sector.

As well, by using actual ministry inspectors in the video instead of actors, the video helps put a "human face" on our inspection staff, showing that they are experts in their field.

Target group:

Employers and workers in the underground mining sector
