Emergency Preparedness and Crisis Response //
Each of our operations has an emergency response plan in place and maintains emergency response capabilities appropriate for the working environment, as well as associated operating risks. Throughout Endeavour, approximately 315 people are trained in emergency response and mine rescue for our mines and in certain cases, as responders for emergency situations in nearby communities. All of our employees and contractors receive basic first aid training as part of the new hire/induction process.
