In this session, Geir Nerbø will discuss the importance of safety culture in mining. Based on the history of mining tragedies and increased safety standards, Geir shows that complience with actual safety regulations is not enough.
A safety culture involves everyone and is based on the company-wide understanding that safety is priority number one. The entire organisation is aligned in respecting, providing and striving for a safe work environment.
A great introduction into the safety doctrine.
