ABSTRACT

When it comes to workplaces characterized by a high degree of hazard and liability, such as mine intervention and rescue in major risk environments the most important element is the convergence of the skills required by job and skills of the individual, this being the guarantee of successful vocational selection. Along with psychological selection, training / retraining and physical training in conditions as close as possible to the reality of future interventions, under the action of stress factors that cause negative mental states and problematic situations, represent elements that complete mental strength.
In the context of this presentation we will address issues related to psychosocial risks generating stress. We will also present a model of psychological training designed to increase mental resistance of mine intervention and rescue personnel in major risk environments through a training program meant to increase mental resistance to higher values, in the sense of increasing the threshold value beyond which the intensity and duration of strains lead to functional alterations. Psychological preparedness can be improved by acquiring knowledge and specific psychological strategies and indirect experiences with emergency situations and scenarios.
This paper presents the results of the project no. PN 16 43 01 12, study conducted through Nucleu program, implemented with the support of NASR.
