Mining Health and Safety innovations came to CBC’s TV show the Dragon’s Den last week.
Great Nipissing Tent was rewarded as one of the Dragons bought in with a 25 percent stake, offering up $275,000 to help increase the production of the “Barrier-to-Go” kits.
The “Barrier-to-Go” is a customizable warning sign that fits into a small bag. Each kit contains a 25 foot long, 3/8” wide rope. The rope is braided at one end with a closed S hook at the other. A rope ratchet allows the line to be tightened. The company has in-house printing making the signs customizable to varying mine sites.
WSN thanks Great Nipissing Tent for helping to keep miners safe.
