Tasmanian Minerals Emergency Response Competition 2023

Announcing the winners of the 35th Tasmanian Minerals Emergency Response Competition 2023 held on Saturday at this year’s competition host site Grange Resources Savage River.

The results are in!

We’re delighted to announce the winners of the Tasmanian Minerals Emergency Response Competition 2023 held on Saturday  at this year’s host Grange Resources Savage River.

The Tasmanian Minerals Emergency Response Committee (TMERC) represents emergency response across Tasmania’s mining and mineral processing industries. This annual event ensures teams from member sites are exposed to potential real-life emergency scenarios so that if a response is required, teams are skilled and ready to respond both as a local team and in collaboration with each other to the best possible standard.

This is the big reason why specialised inductions are required for anyone who enters a worksite.
