Big miners get CORESafety

first_imgSafety is the focus of one of the major articles in the November issue. Over recent months since July Coeur Mining, Newmont and Freeport McMoran have become the latest mining companies to be recognised by The National Mining Association (NMA) for receiving independent certification under its CORESafety® system. CORESafety’s approach to safety and health emphasises accident prevention using a risk-based management system anchored in leadership, management and assurance. The CORESafety framework is designed to go above and beyond what is required by regulations, instead focusing on a goal of continuous improvement. Its objective is zero fatalities and a 50% reduction in mining’s injury rate within five years of implementation. Since its inception in 2011, CORESafety participants have seen a 74% reduction in fatalities.CORESafety is a voluntary mine safety and health initiative developed and facilitated by the NMA, the US mining industry’s national trade association. CORESafety participants agree to: commit to the CORESafety system; implement a functionally-equivalent version of the CORESafety safety and health management system; submit to NMA annual self-assessments of progress toward implementation of the CORESafety safety and health management system; and, if the company elects to become or maintain CORESafety certification, complete a third- party assessment of its safety and health management system to verify that it is functionally equivalent to CORESafety and submit the assessment report to NMA. Coeur was the fifth NMA member company to complete each step of this process.“NMA congratulates Coeur Mining on this noteworthy achievement,” said Hal Quinn, President and CEO of NMA. “Coeur has proven it is fully committed to continuous improvement in safety performance.”“We are committed to the well-being of everyone who sets foot on our mines or projects,” said Mitchell Krebs, Coeur’s President and CEO. “The CORESafety system has helped us reduce our injury rates by over 75% since 2012. We look forward to using it as the framework for even further health and safety improvement going forward as we continue to pursue a higher standard in all aspects of our business.”The NMA has also recognized Newmont Mining Corp for receiving independent certification under its CORESafety® system. Newmont is the fourth NMA member company to complete each step of this process. Safety is a core value for Newmont, and it has made excellent progress towards achieving its goal of zero harm by lowering injury rates by more than 50% since 2012. In fact, Newmont’s injury rates are among the lowest in the mining sector.“We congratulate Newmont on this noteworthy achievement and want to recognize and thank Gary Goldberg for his role in the development of CORESafety,” said Quinn. “The company has been an early developer and adopter of the CORESafety framework and has gone above and beyond to implement its tenets at the company’s operations across the globe.”On September 26, The NMA recognized Freeport-McMoRan’s achievement of independent certification under CORESafety. Freeport-McMoRan joins six other companies in receiving independent certification under NMA’s signature safety initiative.“We congratulate Freeport-McMoRan on this laudable safety milestone,” said Quinn. “This certification demonstrates Freeport-McMoRan’s commitment to putting worker safety and health at the forefront of all of its operations and to continuously improving its safety performance year after year.” CORESafety was a natural progression of Freeport-McMoRan’s safety program that has been certified under OHSAS 18001 for some years, said Red Conger, President and Chief Operating Officer-Americas.“At Freeport-McMoRan, we have a deep commitment to safe production and a strong belief every job and every task can be performed safely,” Conger said. “We are proud to receive this independent certification under the NMA’s CORESafety system. A safety management system using CORESafety will help assure we have a systematic and repeatable approach to safe production. Ultimately, that means employees work safely and return home to their families at the end of each shift.”last_img read more

Syrian barrel bombs kill 76 people including 28 children

first_imgTHE SYRIAN AIR force has been accused of killing 76 people by unleashing barrels packed with explosives on Aleppo, a focal point for fighting between regime and rebel forces.The bombardment, which activists described as “unprecedented”, came as the United Nations said the number of Syrian war refugees in the Middle East was likely to double to 4.1 million by the end of 2014.The number of people slain in Sunday’s bombing of Aleppo “with explosive-packed barrels… rose to 76,” including “28 children and four women,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, updating its previous toll of 36 dead.Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said it was “one of the heaviest tolls from air raids since the beginning of the war” that flared after a brutal regime crackdown on Arab Spring-inspired democracy protests that erupted in March 2011.Explosive-laden barrels were dropped on six rebel-controlled districts in the east, including Sakhur, Ard al-Hamra and Haydariyeh, Abdel Rahman said.The Observatory and activists said government forces frequently drop the barrels filled with TNT on rebel-held areas of the war-torn country from helicopters and warplanes. “The barrels of explosives are not like bombs. Their impact is not accurate as they are dropped without any guidance system, and that is why they cause a large number of victims,” said Abdel Rahman.The devices are made up of metal barrels that have a layer of concrete inside them “so that they cause as much destruction and death as possible,” according to Abdel Rahman.There are two types of barrel bombs, one of which is home-made, and the other of which is made in factories.A Syrian security official said the army prefers the TNT-packed barrels because they are cheaper than regular bombs, which need to be imported from Russia.Syrian refugees walk outside their tents at a refugee camp in the eastern Lebanese border town of Arsal. (Pic: AP Photo/Bilal Hussein)Aleppo raids ‘unprecedented’The Aleppo Media Centre, a network of activists on the ground, called Sunday’s raids on the northern city “unprecedented”.“Everyone is looking up at the skies and watching the planes. But there’s nothing to be done,” AMC activist Mohammed al-Khatieb said.Aleppo, Syria’s second city and pre-war commercial hub, is now divided between areas occupied by troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and rebel fighters.Fighting that erupted with a rebel offensive in July last year has caused massive damage to the historic city.Activists posted video footage online of the aftermath of Sunday’s barrel bomb attacks, showing bulldozers clearing rubble from the streets as men searched for survivors in wrecked buildings.The barrel bombings came as Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom prepared to brief the United Nations Security Council on the use of internationally-banned chemical weapons in the unrelenting war.Sellstrom led an investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.A 21-year-old from Denmark shoots an AK47 rifle at a training camp near Idlib and Aleppo. (Pic: AP Photo)His team published a report on Thursday, saying there was “credible evidence” that the controversial arms had been used five times since the conflict broke out 33 months ago.The United States was on the brink of launching air strikes against Assad in August after a deadly chemical weapons attack in the Eastern Ghouta area on the outskirts of the capital Damascus.It and other world powers blamed regime forces for the attack, but a deal for Assad to surrender his chemical arsenal narrowly averted the strikes.Under UN Security Council Resolution 2118 passed in September, all of Syria’s chemical weapons are to be destroyed by June 30.More than 126,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict, and millions more have fled their homes.According to a fresh UN estimate, some 4.1 million Syrians will be living as refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt by the end of 2014, up from an estimated 2.4 million today.© – AFP 2013last_img read more
