In safety, one size doesn't fit all. Safe ways of working are built shift by shift, day by day and over time in an effort to build an industry free from fatalities and injury. This requires leadership, investment, and commitment to the ethos that if a company cannot mine safely it should not mine at all. ICMM has a goal of zero fatalities.

Preventing fatalities

Reaching zero fatalities through risk management, behaviour and culture.
