American Rock Salt, the largest producing salt mine in the US, has gone above and beyond compliance to improve safety – by installing the life-saving Mobilize Rescue System throughout its facilities. American Rock Salt’s Environmental Manager, Joe Bucci, Jr., stated the the mine has a Safety Program that is "both proactive and effective.”
"That being said, if an accident does occur, having the right life-saving training, supplies and equipment is vital,” said Bucci. "The implementation of the Mobile Rescue System throughout our mine will help ensure that proper medical care is administered quickly and effectively.”
Called the "Cadillac of First Aid Kits” by WIRED magazine, the Mobilize Rescue System includes an innovative, diagnostic first aid app that will help miners assess, manage and monitor medical emergencies until professional first responders arrive. Each unit includes all the equipment necessary to manage severe bleeding, seizures, choking, cardiac arrest, opiate overdoses and much more.
"The app provides ‘just-in-time’ training that empowers bystanders to provide life saving care,” said Seth Goldstein, Director of Training and Education at Mobilize Rescue Systems. "The app ensures that an immediate responder, the person present when the emergency occurs, doesn’t have to rely only on memory in the heat of the moment.”
American Rock Salt has placed ten Comprehensive Mobilize Rescue units throughout underground areas of the mine, and an additional six units are located in various buildings throughout the surface facility. Each unit is positioned next to an AED.
"These devices will provide lifesaving instruction and first aid supplies during what can be a very stressful situation for the both the trauma victim and the attending bystander,” said Bucci. "Hopefully they will never have to be used. Having them though is very comforting.”
American Rock Salt is joining the ranks of law enforcement agencies, safety consultant groups, as well as universities and public and private schools across the country that deployed the system after realizing the value of empowering anyone to respond to critical medical emergencies. Mobilize Rescue Systems offers a wide variety of solutions to empower
"As anyone in the mining industry knows, the most valuable thing that comes out of a mine is the miner,” said Bucci. "Having these systems in place is an important tool in our ongoing efforts to ensure that.”
