As part of the departmental plan for major tourist sites drawn up by the prefect of the department, Explor Wendel Park has signed an agreement aimed at contributing to the safety of visitors to the site in its daily operations and therefore to obtaining the “Sécuri-site” label.

This aims to foster cooperation with the responsible authorities and to unite efforts in terms of visitor safety welcomed each year at The Wendel Mine and the Wendel Miners Museum. It defines the powers of each person and defines the activities for prevention, safety, protection and care of possible victims.

Represented by a visual logo easily identifiable by the public, it will be displayed in the most frequented areas of Explor Wendel Park, particularly at entrances and in high-traffic areas.
