Addressing the Miners and Families on the cave-in accident.
The Chilean mine incident was one that had international eyes on due to the severity of the situation, which was unprecedented, due to how deep they were buried. This incident affected both the families of the miners and fellow coworkers. Minera San Esteban Primera faced a really difficult time when this incident occurred since they had to face mayor obstacles trying to resolve the situation as quickly and swiftly as possible. What plan could they come up with to save these miners and what could they do to prevent future safety issues like this one, from ever occurring again.

This will demonstrate to the families that the company does care for the wellbeing of their employees and their family members. They should sit down, explain the situation carefully to the families and help them prepare what will come next.
Once they speak with the families, will come the hard part. They have to come through with all the promises they made. If the miners did survive, they would have to invest in experts to decide which plan they should make, so they can dig where the miners are and save them. If the miners had died, they should give compensation to the families for X amount of years, until they can go forward with their lives. They should also have to give psychological treatment to the families who suffered the loss of a family member.
Before Minera San Esteban Primera decides to speak with their employees, they have to do an evaluation of the whole history of the company. How many accidents have occurred during the years the company has operated? How
