The facts about working underground


Mining and tunnelling are high-risk industries and some of the most challenging when it comes to protecting the health and safety of people working in those environments. Extremely hazardous conditions include the use of heavy machinery and tools that are potentially dangerous to operatives and co-workers.


The very nature of working underground exposes workers to risks, such as explosions, fires, inrushes of gas or water and more. Which is why mining and tunnelling disasters still happen and can occur under a variety of circumstances.

Securing confidence for you


Historically, underground rescue was a state-funded service in the United Kingdom.


But the collapse of the mining industry, in particular coal mining, led to the demise of the service. However, a new resurgence and rejuvenation of the mining industry has led to us establishing comprehensive, remote area, single-source, and fully integrated solutions for the underground services sector.


Triton Mines & Tunnel Rescue Services already has one of the world’s largest teams of dedicated and specialist people able to quickly and effectively respond to emergencies underground.
