ISSA Mining to promote Vision Zero at World Mining Congress 2016
ISSA Mining will share tried and tested methods to reach the ambitious aims of "Vision Zero" at the World Mining Congress 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, 18-21 October 2016. Vision Zero aims at a working world in which nobody is killed, falls gravely ill or is so seriously injured at work that their health is impaired for the rest of their life. ISSA Mining worked with large mining operators who accomplished to reach this aim and extracted tools and management methods easily to apply, suiting small companies as well. In a keynote presentation and in a dedicated session, ISSA Mining will show that "zero accidents" is a realistic aim in mining as well.
