Minezone is a large mining company that employs approximately 7000 workers. The company has become increasingly concerned about workplace safety as there had been a growing number of incidents, including one death in 2007. Minezone’s CEO, Martha Henderson, was committed to improving the safety of their workers, so in 2008 they undertook a large scale training program to educate their workforce about work safety. Some successful aspects of the program included:
• all workers were given the opportunity to offer their point of view on what would make a difference to their safety in the workplace
• all workers were retrained in aspects of safety
• a system of rewards was offered to work teams that demonstrated a decrease in the number of workplace incidents
• new workers were provided with extensive training in the correct use of equipment.
