Miners’ Promise releases FREE resource for people impacted by a death in the workplace

14 August 2015

A fully comprehensive and free resource, including key information on organisational responsibilities, processes and contact information to help individuals and families traverse the complexities following a workplace death was released by Miners’ Promise this August and is now available for download via this website.

A Life Lost: The Road to Recovery” was compiled and written by Miners’ Promise for people directly impacted by the sudden death of a loved one. It includes key information about common processes and procedures, with particularly detailed information on procedures and responsibilities following a death in the workplace.

“The booklet is the culmination of a number of years work by Miners’ Promise founder, Helen Fitzroy, who has researched, compiled and verified contact information for key support organisations across Australia – bringing them together into one central resource,” said Graham Crew, Chairperson, Miners’ Promise.

“Through this resource, we hope to provide support to those affected in often tragic circumstances. Miners’ Promise members recognise the importance of family and loved ones in their working life, as well as supporting their ‘mates’ in the Resources sector. This resource is just one small way to provide support when it is needed most,” he added.

life-lost-coverThe Road to Recovery contains three essential types of information:

  • A guide on the roles and responsibilities of the various agencies and organisations involved in the process following a person’s death, particularly where the death has occurred in the workplace;
  • A comprehensive list of support services across Australia, broken down into State jurisdictions and including full contact details (correct at the time of publishing); and
  • Information about coping with grief, and how to support others dealing with grief.

Who else could benefit from access to this resource?

This resource is useful for all people coping with the death of a loved one, whether this occurred in, or outside the workplace and although it was created with the resources industry in mind, it is also relevant to everyone, regardless of the industry in Australia in which they work.
