The Corporation’s current activities are focused on field exploration, which does not require extensive full-time staff. Commercial mining operations are not underway. Accordingly, Pacific Iron Ore does not require formal internal health or safety programs.
The Corporation requires its technical contractors to adhere to all federal and provincial regulatory health and safety standards, including worker’s compensation board requirements, motor vehicle operating standards, aircraft operating standards, standards governing the safe storage, transport and handling of explosives, and standards governing the safe operation of mining exploration and earth-moving equipment.
As Pacific Iron Ore’s field operations grow in scale, the Corporation will implement appropriate additional health and safety programs.
