Shining the Spotlight on Safety:

Our Year-End Message for All Miners

and Mining Companies

It’s hard to believe that 2016 is already coming to an end, and 2017 is just around the corner.

With that in mind, we’d like to wish each of you – and your families, friends and loved ones – a safe, happy holiday season.

The National Mining Association commends each miner and mining company for the results they’ve achieved over the last 12 months, especially regarding safety and health.

In 2016, mining operations made measurable reductions in fatalities and injuries, continuing a trend that began in 2015.
Companies—including Peabody Energy, Hecla Mining and Cloud Peak Energy—showed their commitment to safety and health by receiving independent certification under the CORESafety® system. And the industry continued to pursue the goal of achieving zero fatalities and a 50 percent reduction in the injury rate in five years (0-50-5). 
If your company implemented CORESafety in 2016, 
or applied it to your existing management model, the National Mining Association thanks you. It takes genuine leadership and commitment to make that happen.

If you haven’t yet brought CORESafety to your company, then 2017 is the ideal time to launch the initiative or reinforce your safety efforts.

CORESafety and the National Mining Association remain committed to providing you with actionable resources and valuable information in the New Year.
We all want the same thing during the holidays and every day of the year: for everyone to return home safely when the workday is done.
Happy Holidays and a safe New Year,
Kevin Crutchfield
