Mining poses an array of EHS and sustainability challenges for a company; from the bottom of the org chart to the top, and everywhere in-between. The VelocityEHS Platform provides you with a complete picture of your safety, compliance, environmental and operational risks through a single platform, so you can concentrate on the most critical EHS tasks and elements of your business at any given time.
How do you perform with a bullseye on your back?
It’s an interesting time to be in mining. On the one hand, a global down-trend has companies on guard. On the other hand, tough times have called for desperate measures and many companies are seeing significant gains in productivity thanks to an array of strategies that are making mining one of the most progressive and exciting industries of the last five years.
Similarly, when you oversee EHS and sustainability in the mining industry, you have a lot of divergent market forces to contend with: labor relations, energy usage, fluctuating supply and demand, regulatory oversight, and miner safety. Companies are looking for a competitive edge wherever they can find it, even just a few percentage points in the right direction helps. While the number of mining accidents has dramatically declined in number and severity in recent decades, safety continues to be a top priority for those mining companies looking to gain a competitive advantage through lower DART rates and greater efficiencies.
Failure to execute your EHS strategy can set your company back. And catastrophic failures, in addition to heartbreaking loss of life, can lead to enormous financial losses and the destruction of your corporate image. In 2010, an explosion at Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia killed 29 miners and raised public concern over mine safety standards. The company’s CEO was eventually found guilty of conspiring to violate mine safety laws. The disaster serves as a modern-day example of not only the dangers that miners face, but the importance safety standards have on the well-being of those employed in the mining industry.
