ALCOA SAMPLE CREW PRIORITISE SAFETY IN THE SUMMER HEAT
With an exceptionally hot start to the summer season and a high number of fire bans, the Alcoa Sample Drilling Project crews have implemented a number of safety precautions to manage their hydration levels and ensure the health and safety of their colleagues.
A key area of focus has been to ensure the field crews are aware of the entry and exit points to their work areas at all times, in case they need to evacuate and their main entry point cannot be used. This is an essential measure when working in thick bush and difficult conditions.
The project has also implemented hydration testing, providing a means for personnel to self-manage their hydration levels throughout the warmer months.
