Health and Safety

Health and Safety

The mining industry has the potential to compromise the health and safety of its workforce - both through daily operations and longer term impact on health. Management systems have improved many mining operations, but safety performance often remains stubbornly below target levels.

Potential investors need confidence that this area is well managed, but it can be shattered by a poor record caused by ingrained local cultures, poor legislation and enforcement or lack of adequate funding. Often these aspects all go together.

And even if you do have a good system in place, why do accidents keep on happening? Why do people appear not to follow the rules? Our specialist teams can not only identify health and safety risks and develop effective controls, but also find out why not everyone may be buying into the concept.

We can audit your existing health and safety managements systems, or implement new ones with the support you need. Our experienced surface and underground mining staff and specialist engineers in processing, smelting, roof bolting, geotechnical engineering and cyanide know what to look for. We also carry out cyanide audits for companies who want to get proper accreditation for the management of this sensitive material.
