The most difficult part of the day was getting to your workstation or area, because of the non stop traffic of huge Mining Trucks. You always had to be aware of your location with respect to those trucks, since the operators had limited visibility from their driving position. Special courses had to be taken to be around them and you need special licence to drive in the mine. Everyone was aware of this danger, including the operators, so work was fun and safe
You were provided all the materials and tools to do your job, and, you were always in touch with other workers.
