  • “Left of Boom was engaged by De Grey Mining Ltd in early 2021 to assist in the development of a Crisis Management and Response capability, including the development of a fit for purpose plan and training for the Crisis Management Team. It was not possible to conduct either the plan development or the training face to face due to border lockdowns for Covid-19, but Grant and his team still delivered an outstanding result for De Grey through the innovative use of technology to ensure the quality of the Crisis plan and team development was not compromised.  Both the plan and the team were tested when they were required to respond to a rapidly developing bushfire that threatened our operations over a number of days, with the plan and the team, supported throughout by the Left of Boom team, responding to the emergency in a decisive and effective manner. Feedback after the event from the newly formed De Grey Crisis Management Team clearly identified the quality of the training and support provided by Left of Boom. “   
    John Brockelsby, Manager Risk, Health, Safety & Environment, De Grey Mining
