Lessons have been learned to prevent a repeat of the 2008 tragedy in which a woman died after falling down a mineshaft, the Community Safety Minister has said.
Lawyer Alison Hume suffered "survivable" injuries when she plunged 46ft (14m) down a collapsed shaft in Galston, Ayrshire in July 2008.
But the 44-year-old developed hypothermia, had a heart attack and died in hospital after spending around four hours in the shaft.
A fatal accident inquiry in November last year found that her death was "accelerated" by a delay by rescue services in pulling her out.
The Scottish Government has now published its response to an inquiry into the unsuccessful rescue attempt.
The inquiry, the findings of which were published in March by the Chief Inspector of Fire and Rescue Authorities, Steven Torrie, set out a number of recommendations and lessons to be learned from the tragedy.
The Government's response notes that a review of the process for the creation and development of operational policy within Strathclyde Fire and Rescue, the service responsible for the failed rescue attempt, has been undertaken and Strathclyde now has a specialist line rescue team.
All eight fire services now have arrangements in place for line rescue, either on their own or through mutual agreements.
National rope rescue training has also been introduced at a new facility at Newcraighall near Edinburgh.
Community Safety Minister Roseanna Cunningham said: "The chief inspector's inquiry was a very important piece of work, and a reminder that the death of Alison Hume was a tragedy the likes of which we never want to see repeated, and our thoughts are with Mrs Hume's family and friends."
