Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of Copper Mountain employees.
We have a robust safety and health training program as well as monitoring and reporting systems to ensure top performance. Our Health and Safety Policy entails that we are responsible for providing and maintaining a secure, healthy work environment. Prior to starting their work, all Copper Mountain employees and contractors are required to undergo training on how to perform their jobs safely and productively.
We are focused on continuously improving our safety results. Over the years we have significantly reduced our Total Injury Frequency, which is the number of Lost Time Injuries (LTI), medical aids, recordable medical aids and first aids per 200,000 hours worked. We ultimately are moving towards “zero harm”.
Copper Mountain’s health and safety objectives are contingent on our management team providing active leadership and support as well as the meaningful participation of all employees. Our Joint Occupational Health, Safety, and Environment Committee participates in monthly workplace inspections and meetings to discuss health, safety, and environmental matters affecting our team. This committee is made up of representatives across the organization from each crew and our management.
Copper Mountain also takes emergency preparedness seriously. Our Emergency Response Team consists of 59 active team members — 46 of whom are certified in Mine Rescue and 34 are qualified in Occupational First Aid Level 3. Our team regularly participates in Zone Mine Rescue and Three-Person Miner First Aid competitions. Our Joint Occupational Health, Safety, and Environment Committee also conducts monthly workplace inspections and meetings to discuss health, safety, and environmental matters.
