The New Face of Mining: Allison Hagerman

Allison Hagerman holds her breath sometimes in blasting class when the newer students load their own holes, but she knows these University of Arizona students are well-trained and take safety seriously, because that is what they are being taught.

For two weeks every year, all UA mining and geological engineering students undergo intensive training, which emphasizes avoidance of hazards, emergency medical procedures and first aid, escape and emergency evacuations, fire warning and firefighting procedures, health and safety.
