Redpath leads from the front in recognising safety

first_imgThe Coal Division project team of Redpath, one of the key sponsors of the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame, has accomplished a milestone in safety performance by achieving one year Lost Time Injury Free (LTI) as of May 22, 2013. In addition to this, the team has also set a new mine development record by completing 1,216 m of one development panel throughout the month of June, more than double the usual monthly development. Redpath announced that in mid July it reached 90 days total recordable incident free, and Redpath’s General Manager of Coal, Gavin Ramage, says these great achievements are a reflection of the strong culture of safety and hard work. Redpath is the sponsor of the safety inductee www.im-halloffame.com“This is an excellent safety milestone by the team, both for Redpath and for the mining industry itself and, along with the new development record, highlights that a strong commitment to safety and productivity can achieve outstanding results,” says Ramage. “The project team also completed a very successful production month in May, with no injuries being sustained, and it is our goal to continually build upon our safe operations with productivity achievements that are industry leading.”The next goal for the project team is to achieve one year Total Recordable Injury Free, which seems ambitious, but Ramage says it is highly possible if all team members actively contribute to the ongoing reduction of unsafe conditions and unsafe behaviours.The Redpath Coal Division won its first coal mine contract in late 2011. Redpath provides contract mining and engineering services to the underground metalliferous, coal and civil sectors.
