Prioritizing the health and safety of our people.

We believe the health and safety of our employees, respect for the environment, and active engagement with local communities are fundamental to our business.

For us, safety is non-negotiable because it ensures the well-being of our people and our business. It’s why we have established a Safety Management System to ensure that efforts to create industry-leading safety and operational performance are thoughtfully, thoroughly and expertly planned, executed and monitored, and subject to continual improvement.

Most recently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we successfully implemented systems and procedures to mitigate the impact of the virus on the health of our employees and contractors, and the continuity of our operations. We have worked closely with national health authorities to implement best practices across our operations.

Protecting Our Employees at Mantoverde

The health and safety of our employees and contractors is a key priority and ensures our ongoing social license to operate. We have established an industry-leading safety management system and in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2019, Mantoverde received the top ranked John T Ryan Safety Award for the lowest reportable injury frequency nation-wide in Chile in the previous year. In addition, Mantoverde received in 2019 the top award for safety from the National Geology and Mining Service, a Chilean government agency.

From 2018 to 2020, our average Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate was 0.10 per 200,000 hours worked, compared to the Chile Industry average of 0.31, as reported by the Chilean Mining Ministry.
