In an effort to strengthen our commitment to respect human rights and in line with the implementation of the Conflict-Free Gold Standard in 2013, we recognized that it would be imperative to offer training and support across our sites. One key aspect of the training offered to personnel was on human rights – particularly on best practices in human rights and security.
The Day of Remembrance marked a turning point in our safety culture. Although our annual All Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR) for 2013 was unchanged from 2012, that does not tell the story for the year. Over the first three quarters of 2013, the AIFR rose steadily to 1.95. Then, after the Day of Remembrance, and the implementation of several key safety initiatives, the AIFR dropped steeply, to 1.36 for the fourth quarter. We strongly believe that the awareness and new initiatives were critical factors.
