CORESafety’s approach to safety and health emphasises accident prevention through use of a risk-based management system. The framework is designed to go beyond what is required by regulations, focusing on continuous improvement. Its objective is zero fatalities and a 50% reduction in mining’s injury rate within five years of implementation. In 2017, companies participating in the CORESafety system closed the year with zero fatalities across US operations.
