The past government who never lifted a hand to these men when they needed it , once the men are out under another government the past government should be jailed for listening to a bunch of self made experts called health and safety who know nothing about mining , I would believe some of these men could had suffered for days waiting for help as the experts sat at the mines door saying it's to dangerous to go in , what a great country we live in , so well managed we can't help others in need , so winston is going to have a go , thanks ,
john key - lock him up
No way would those tags be left on the board.
How long after the explosions did they GAG the pit??
Wealthy Corporations bribed the National Govt. to introduced the Employment Contracts Act so they could do exactly this and get away with it. John Key and the National Party seemed to have all the answers at the time.
Like "management" knows what happens in the mines.. If you were to believe any one it would be those that work directly in those mines not those sitting at desks.. And now they want to seal the mine so no one can investigate.. Corporate Scumbags..
Peter Whittall should kill himself. He wouldn't even so much as give the men equipment that was fit for purpose or a proper emergency exit - senior managers tried to climb the ladder passed off as an emergency exit and failed, and the only ones who managed the entire practice climb were the very fittest men. Entirely preventable and anyone who says it wasn't is deluding themselves.
Whittall is to New Zealand mining what Don Blankenship and Bob Murray are to US mining. Production before safety while telling the world that safety is your top priority. They should all be prosecuted criminally. Unfortunately, here in the US the federal mine safety law is very weak when it comes to criminal prosecution.
Guilty....you knew from the start those boys or men where in danger.....but what can I say .....Those gueys arent stupid......they did study and learnerd a thing or 2....better than a mine manager....What can I say pay, peanuts and expect monkeys. Its all manangements fault abd I mean Ingeneurs(Ingeneers)
Reddman, all electrical equipment used underground in coal mines has to have intrinsically safe certification to make sure it cannot trigger an explosion. It's also pitch black in most parts of a mine. It's darker than most people will ever have experienced. You could stick your finger in your eye and still not see it. Away from the pit bottom it's rare to have any lights so the camera would be ineffective. All it would see, at best, would be the beams of the miners' cap lamps moving about.
your dead man tags are your own responsibility, if guys aren't putting them on the board properly, the pit boss has to get on them. and the shift boss should be checking gas levels at intervals during the shift
Have these guys heard of a security camera system? That would be one of the minimums I'd expect in such an occupation.
