Mining & Remote Worksites

Improve medical care and reduce risk for your mining projects.

With mining projects moving to increasingly remote areas, and the aging of our workforce, there is an increased need for more than just first aid at mining sites.

24/7 Medical Support – PRAXES provides your onsite First Aid personnel with 24/7 access to our team of Canadian emergency doctors for immediate support.

Medical Kits – We provide a medical kit containing simple vital signs devices, over-the-counter and prescription medications, and bandages and dressings.

Work with First Aid Personnel – Our doctors work with your First Aid personnel to diagnose any medical issues, provide orders for treatment, and follow up as needed.

Treat Workers On-Site – Our goal is to treat workers onsite as much as possible and avoid the need for expensive medevacs.

Medical Kits

PRAXES provides medical kits to meet the unique needs of each site, taking into account number of people onsite, type of work being done, time and distance away from higher level medical care, frequency of resupply access.

All items are numbered to make it easy to find when ordered by our doctors. All medical kits are supplied by Shipp Pharmacy, an integrated PRAXES partner.

All medications and supplies can be procured by PRAXES through our national pharmacy and equipment suppliers.

Deliveries can be shipped directly to a specific location(s) or where possible a standing prescription order can be set up at a local pharmacy.

Client Testimonials

Hear what our mining & exploration clients have to say.

“I’m extremely impressed with the medical support service which PRAXES has consistently provided to Marathon Gold. Our Camp Managers feel like they can get a ‘quick response’ and support for decision-making. It is about being confident and reducing anxiety. I have strongly recommended that Marathon continue to maintain this existing relationship well into the future.”

Sherry Dunsworth
Sr VP:Exploration, MaRATHON GOLD

“We like the 24/7 coverage, quick response/no big process, and expertise of the Doctors.
Our first Aiders say they feel more ‘confident’ and that they have ‘reassurance’ and support in making decisions, getting second opinions, etc.
Using PRAXES’ service has reduced the number of Emergency visits as well.”
