Managing a Mining Lifestyle

Working irregular hours offers some great benefits, including better pay and more flexibility during your time off to get things done while the rest of the world is working. However, there are also challenges that impact your sleep, alertness, family life, health and safety.

This video program provides practical solutions for easing the adjustment and day-to-day challenges associated with mining lifestyles. It can be a powerful tool for improving the physical and psychological well-being of heavy equipment operators and, as a result, increase safety, morale and performance. We encourage spouses and partners to view the video as well; they are greatly affected by their partners' work schedules and their support can help their spouses arrive home safely every day.

You can view the entire 30-minute video here. You can also request a copy of the DVD in English or Spanish at no charge. (If requesting multiple copies, please tell us how you plan to use the DVDs.)
