Using intelligent technology to protect contractors and install a safety culture Conference
Our expert in HSSEQ Compliance & Risk Management Processes, Anne-Sophie Tetreault will present a Conference entitled “Using intelligent technology to protect contractors and instill a safety culture”
Throughout this presentation, guests will learn that by building a culture of safety and implementing advanced technologies, corporations in the mining industry have made significant progress in reducing employee fatalities and severe injuries. Workers employed by mines are also often contractors, do not benefit as much as the employees from total immersion in their safety culture, nor do they benefit from a company’s communications, and technological systems. As a result, severe on-site injury and fatalities continue to pose major threat to contractors. Mining corporations can make their culture of safety more robust and inclusive by adapting and applying their approach to contractors.
Attendees will learn how they can adapt the approach to reduce their employees’ injury and fatalities, to also improve contractor safety and security onsite.
