Ground instability is one of the main causes of deaths or serious injuries in underground mines. From now until the end of September, the Ministry of Labour is conducting a province-wide inspection blitz. The focus is on ground instability. Workplace Safety North is helping employers prepare for these inspection visits. They provide education and some insight into what the Ministry is looking for. Mike Parent is the vice president of Prevention Services. He recently spoke with CBC reporter Angela Gemmill.
