Taking Safety in Mining a step ahead

Posted May 18, 2014 by madhura
4th Global H&S Forum in Mining will share a platform with the industry leaders to summon the roles of people, technology and systems in enhancing safety programs to build or improve the culture of safety in an organization.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) May 18, 2014 -- Mining companies operate in a very risky environment and deal with hazardous materials on daily basis hence keeping people safe is a growing concern to overcome. Lack of awareness can not only cause million of dollars but many lives as well. Therefore, it is essential to raise HSE issues high up on your board agenda and integrate them with your company’s core values.

The mining industry is consciously shifting its mind-set to focus on employee health, safety and emergency response. Mining leaders believe that that “zero harm” is not about making safety a core value, it is also about eliminating physical injuries and illnesses, taking control of one’s own health and safety, and consistently choosing safer behavior.

In the realm of the current mining scenario where mining leaders are searching for best answers to the health and safety concerns pertaining to the nature of the workplace, 4th Global Health & Safety Forum in Mining will bring together the region's prominent names to collectively evaluate every possible solution to bring about a risk free, healthy and safe work culture.

Over a period of three days, from 9th – 11th September 2014, this forum aims to elevate health & safety performances and for minimizing risks and urging this sector to optimize its potential.

As the emphasis on safety has increased, operational best practices and risk-mitigation theories have been applied, resulting in significant improvements to ensure a less dangerous workplace. However, it seems that progress has reached a plateau and that new insight is required to achieve the next breakthrough.

With the advancement of technology and system integrated operational safety models, miners today are more aware and alert for safety measure, thus positively contributing to develop a risk free mining culture.

Eminent speakers and Industry peers will gather in Johannesburg – South Africa for this forum to brainstorm and uphold the health and safety standards in mining operations through knowledge-sharing sessions, intriguing panel discussions and relevant case-studies.

Through the central theme of “Building a Safety Culture – Role of People, Technology & Systems” this forum will focus on innovative strategies adopted to create culture of safety through periodic safety trainings and identifying mining leaders’ approach towards emergency preparedness.
