Mosaic’s Esterhazy and Belle Plaine facilities recently received Safety Achievement Awards from the Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA).
The SMA is an industry organization representing Saskatchewan’s mining and mineral exploration industry. Employees at both Mosaic mines were recognized for their safety successes/injury statistics. Over the last decade, Mosaic has improved safety at its facilities by 70%.
The SMA annually recognizes member companies that realized an injury rating of zero. The SMA rating is achieved by a calculation of Lost Time Injury (LTI) and Modified Work Injury (MWI) frequency rate plus 10% of the LTI and MWI severity rate
The awards presentation was held during the SMA’s Annual General Meeting in Saskatoon on March 2. Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, Don Morgan presented the award alongside representatives from the SMA to the Esterhazy and Belle Plaine sites.
These awards represent Mosaic’s commitment to ensure all personnel return home safely every day. At Mosaic, safety is our top priority, and we believe no task or tonne of product is more important than the safety of our employees and contractors. Mosaic achieves this through continuous training and safety improvements at all our facilities.
