Market Entry Planning
Democratic Republic of the Congo
A mining services client was concerned about the potential risks of commencing a project in a highly challenging area of the DRC. ERS were able to complete a frontline assessment and provide comprehensive recommendations on how the company could implement and manage the project safely and profitably.
Remote Area Health Support
A listed gold mining company working in a remote and challenging location of the Southern Philippines was concerned about the lack of health support available to their staff. ERS were able to design a health solution that ensures value from their on-site clinic but is backed up with additional on-call support from our team of emergency medical physicians and specialists. The Company’s staff on site have been greatly reassured. Staff retention levels are high and the mine is now in full production.
A publicly listed international construction company had one of their executives extorted in India. ERS were able to deploy assets to the area, complete a quick assessment and immediately commence negotiations and local liaison. The result was the safe and timely release of the executive without the need for any extortion demand to be met. The Company was able to continue operations without concerns over business continuity or liability and without any damage to their image and reputation.
Risk Assessment and Planning
A high profile international development organisation coordinating valuable infrastructure work was concerned about the risks to their staff of implementing projects in high risk areas of the country controlled by terrorist groups. ERS were able to deploy a team into country in order to complete assessments and subsequently implement and train staff on new procedures that now enables their staff to travel country wide in a low profile manner. This has enabled them to deliver on their project commitments with lower risks to the safety and the health of their project teams.
Safety and Security Assessments
The Board of Directors of a mining company operating in remote Mozambique was concerned about potential exposures to in-security and the absence of a safety culture in the country. Our team deployed to site and completed integrated security, safety, community, health and supply chain assessments. Recommendations were made to improve operations and reduce liability concerns. Significant cost savings and wider efficiencies were realised through implementation of the recommendations. Subsequently a business continuity plan was prepared that has guided the improved resilience of the project .
