To provide healthy and safe working conditions, organizations need a robust management approach that drives the prevention of physical and mental harm and the promotion of workers’ health.

We spoke with our own Peter Calnan, VP of Safety and Health, to talk about our safety and health successes, and how innovation is helping make our mines the safest they can be.
