Since its deployment in 2011, CORESafety has made measurable strides toward achieving its ultimate goal within the mining industry of zero fatalities and a 50 percent reduction in the rate of injuries within five years.
Today, more than 100,000 U.S. mining industry employees are participating in CORESafety, a number that continues to grow as more mining companies endorse this management system approach to improve safety and health performance.
2015 was a historic year for the mining industry – the safest year ever recorded, according to the U.S. Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). And for those companies already using CORESafety, it’s obvious that progress is being made.
The National Mining Association strongly encourages you to consider implementing CORESafety this year in your mining company.
If you’re already a CORESafety member, be sure that you’re taking full advantage of its resources (online and offline), while continuing to improve your safety performance through active leadership and culture enhancement.
