Responsible mining companies have an unwavering commitment to the health and safety of workers and their families, local communities and wider society. Health and safety has to be at the heart of all operations and processes. Mining presents various hazards that can be of significant consequence, but through effective risk management strategies neither safety incidents nor the onset of occupational diseases are inevitable. ICMM members are progressing towards a goal of zero fatalities, occupational disease and catastrophic events. People have a right to go home safe and healthy to their families and their communities at the end of every day.
