The 0:50:5 Objective
- 0 fatalities
- 50% reduction in mining related injuries
- …in 5 years
The CORESafety® framework includes a safety and health management system based on three core organizational competencies…
…that are managed through continual improvement principles:
These competencies are further defined in 20 modules. Each module includes performance expectations and timelines to ensure steady progress toward the goal of achieving zero fatalities and 50 percent reduction in the rate of injuries within five years (0:50:5)
For some companies, implementation of CORESafety is a big step in their journey to achieve 0:50:5. Others will see opportunities to bring additional value to safety and health management by developing additional expectations. NMA member companies are not restricted by the scope of the CORESafety Safety and Health Management System and are encouraged to include additional processes, procedures and programs they feel are appropriate.
The entire CORESafety system should be in place at every company by 2015.
How will we do it?
Clear communications, accountability, personnel development and culture enhancement are all embodied in leadership. Management is ultimately responsible for the safety system.
Risk identification, change management, incident reporting and investigation, training, and emergency management ensure that hazards and risks are minimized to the greatest extent possible.
Assessments, whether internal or provided by third-party verification, tell us whether the system is working and how we can make improvements.
