Codelco and Anglo American recognize Metso's

contribution to safety

Metso Corporation's press release on July 26, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. EET

Metso has received recognition for promoting safety at the worksites of Codelco and Anglo American in Chile. Metso has been able to improve the safety of operations at both sites by developing and implementing innovative safety enhancements. The award from Codelco and the written testimonial from Anglo American were received at customer-hosted events. 

A mobile application tool developed by Metso is used by the health, safety, environment and quality personnel at the Codelco worksite. By utilizing a pre-formatted checklist, it evaluates the various conditions that must be controlled in field supervision, such as the application of risk control sheets and training of personnel involved. All this yields a supervision performance result to ensure proper implementation of controls and application of preventive measures. 

Similarly, Metso's commitment to the goal of zero incidents has been recognized by Anglo American, specifically the implementation of job risk assessment procedures that enable operational continuity in the plants, a task always focused on critical controls.

"We encourage other companies in the industry to follow the example set by Metso and implement similar initiatives to improve the safety of their operations," says Hernán Cabello, Superintendent, Gabriela Mistral, Codelco.

"We are honored to receive these recognitions. For us at Metso, it is important to engage everyone in initiatives that improve safety. The highest safety standards are shared across Metso and we are committed to keeping it as our top priority in the future as well," says Aldo Cermenati, Senior Vice President, Pacific Rim market area.
