Mining companies have emerged as leaders of safety and environmental performance thanks to their adoption of standards and good management practices. Tools are now available to take EHS performance to the next level.
Mining Operations Have Big Challenges
Since our launch in 2008, Nimonik has worked closely with the mining industry to improve their regulatory compliance. Though tremendous progress has been made, compliance with environmental, health and safety, and quality legislation and standards is an on-going challenge. With many moving parts, large staff, remote locations and changing regulations, compliance with regulatory requirements is an essential and challenging part of operations. Nimonik works closely with its clients to ensure regulatory updates are informing the right people and compliance actions are clearly documented for external auditors to verify.
