How can you contribute to ZERO HARM?
As we start 2013 with renewed energy, passion and dedication we need to remind ourselves of our number one priority and most important value: SAFETY.
As “safety professionals” the Field Services inspectors' attention to safety is part of their everyday working routine; the majority of the inspections they perform are aimed at reducing safety risks in the working environment. But attention to safety cannot be left to the professionals alone. It is part of the job for each and every Anglo American employee. We all have to ask ourselves – how can I contribute to ZERO HARM?
This issue of the Technical Solutions Safety newsletter focuses on one of Field Services' primary risk mitigation inspections, namely Rope Condition Assessments (RCA), a service that ensures the safe transport of thousands of Anglo American employees, as well as equipment and ore, in and out of our mines on a daily basis.
While the information is second nature to our inspectors, I trust it will be of interest to the rest of the Technical Solutions team. Enjoy the first 2013 SHE newsletter - and a happy, SAFE new year to you all.
