Ensuring the work is safe and efficient in an open pit or underground mine is everybody’s job.
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 workers safe.
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.
The Canadian mining industry prides itself on its safety culture so at ABCanada we don’t treat HSE initiatives as checkbox exercises. Buying our software is not a finality- it’s simply the beginning of your journey toward implementing a strong safety culture.
We can help.

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 worksites. 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 our worksites. 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.
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 Engineering Services.
