Safescape has the edge on mine roads

The top Western Australian company in this year’s Energise accelerator program is developing an ambitious plan for robotic on-site manufacturing of equipment it believes will boost safety and dramatically cut costs at open pit mines.

Led by chief executive and 40under40 award winner Steve Durkin, Safescape has already achieved significant commercial success with Laddertube, an escape system designed for underground mines.

Manufactured at Safescape’s plant in Forrestfield, Laddertube is used in 73 mines in 13 countries.

Safescape is a truly innovative Australian company which started with its highly innovative escape ladders and now with the edge protector. I am sure that they will have more solid innovations in the coming years
