Three years ago, in a first for the mining industry, Anglo American developed its own safety maturity model to initiate a systemic change in safety behaviour.
Cardeas has been part of the team working with Anglo and University of Queensland to ‘institutionalise’ safety risk management so that everyone makes the right decisions affecting safety’. Leading on communication and engagement efforts in this global education programme for everyone from mine-workers to the Board, Cardeas has helped challenge and positively affect how employees behave with regard to safety.
Having identified that effective management of risks was essential to a step-change in safety performance, Anglo American now urges other companies to benefit. On offer is an innovative and transformational risk management education, G-MIRM – the Global Minerals Industry Risk Management Programme.
This engaging and motivating multi-level education is set to become an industry standard. It stands tall on the strength and legitimacy of its contribution to safe production by educating and equipping employees with the knowledge and skills to better identify hazards, assess and manage risks using a standard set of tools and techniques.
