Mining

Ensuring the work is safe and efficient in an open pit mine or an underground mine is everybody’s job.

According to Statistics Canada data, the mining industry directly employed 373,435 people in 2015, accounting for roughly one in every 48 Canadian jobs. Include companies indirectly employed by the mining industry (they supply goods and services to the mining industry) and there are an additional 189,657 individuals. The mining industry in Canada, directly and indirectly, employs over 560,000 people!!

The Canadian mining industry prides itself on its safety culture.

Health and safety regulations are always changing, making it difficult for you, your workers and your contractors to keep up to date and have certainty that you are always working within current rules. ABCanada is ready to help you keep everyone on the same page for compliance so you can keep your work sites safe and projects on schedule.

We can help.

In order to assist mining companies to meet their provincial and federal regulatory needs, ABCanada provides a suite of policies, practices, procedures and forms within our cloud-based HSE Management System (LibraSystem).

Our HSE software is user-friendly, cloud-based, and designed for end users. We can communicate industry and company changes to all your workers, whether they’re on-site or in the office.

You’ll find our HSE Software full of relevant HSE policies, best practices, task-specific procedures, and forms.

They’re all based on industry best practices and regulated requirements, and we update them for you as requirements change. The content is practical and user-friendly; easy to search, review and print; and it can be customized to meet your specific needs.

By accessing and using ABCanada’s policies and procedures, mining companies meet their commitments to safety management and ensure the protection of their workers and the environment.

Our programs are suitable for COR and SECOR certifications and have been reviewed extensively by industry registries such as ISNetworld, PICS/Avetta and ComplyWorks.

We always get a passing grade and would be happy to help you through the certification and review processes. Take a look at our HSE Registry Compliance and COR/SECOR Support Services as well as our HSE Consulting Services.

Keep your Miners safe

In addition to the information provided through LibraSystem, ABCanada also provides companies with access to a comprehensive, easy to use, incident tracking and management system (ABCan-Track).

Whether working underground or at an open pit, miners face many risks from confined spaces, uneven terrain, poor ventilation, flammable products, noise, cave-ins, rock falls, heat exposure, explosives, dust exposure and more. Any statistics regarding these hazards can be invaluable in eliminating and better managing risks that threaten worker safety. This information can positively change your safety culture and help keep your workers safe.

When incidents and near misses happen, our cloud-based system helps ensure that they won’t happen again!

Thankfully not every work-site incident is a catastrophe, and one of the best ways to prevent catastrophic incidents is to learn as much as you can from the smaller incidents and near misses happening on your work-sites. Many companies are already using ABCan-Track to identify and track trends, document investigations, and root causes, and assign corrective actions and notifications to ensure a safer future at their work-sites. Real-time communication between all members invested in a your company’s HSE program allows HSE managers and supervisors to keep track of HSE activities, goals, progress and problem areas.

The Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) was founded in 1919 as a non-profit organization to facilitate the exchange of information between Workers’ Compensation Boards and Commissions.

Sadly, there were 852 reported workplace fatalities in Canada in 2015 . 538 of the deaths were related to exposure to harmful substances or environments. 52 of the workplace fatalities were related to mining, quarrying and oil wells.
