Ontario Mine Rescue Body Recovery Report

Publication Type: 
Emergency Preparedness
Mine emergencies and incidents can occur where the recovery of a body may become the responsibility of a mine operator. Though this operation is not within the mandate of the Ontario Mine Rescue program, volunteers may be involved due to their training and the nature of the incident. The Mine Rescue Body Recovery Report summarizes the roles and responsibilities of those involved in body recovery; outlines how to conduct a recovery; addresses concerns that may arise; and more, including a note on the need for critical incident response. This report is a necessary resource for those responsible for and/or involved in emergency response.
