Safety and

“Safe Enough for Our Families”. It’s the phrase that captures one of our core strengths and sets a standard that guides our efforts to ensure and support the safety and health of our people at work, at home and in their communities.

2015 Highlights

  • Regrettably, in 2015, we failed in our main objective of Zero Fatalities with the loss of a miner at our Musselwhite mine site in Ontario, Canada. Prior to November 25, 2015, we had completed 788 days without a fatality.
  • All Goldcorp sites and offices halted production to participate in our third annual Day of Remembrance.
  • Members of the Executive Leadership Team each “adopted” a mine and strengthened the safety dialogue with the site throughout the year.
  • To further our efforts in preventing Potential Fatal Occurrences (PFOs), we began tracking repeat incidents and sharing lessons learned across the organization.

Case Studies

Remote-controlled Safety and Productivity
All-Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR), which includes employees and contractors, was 1.26 per 200,000 hours worked – a 16% improvement compared to 2014.20
Lost Time Incidents (LTIs) were significantly reduced, with 20 fewer serious injuries on the job, and an overall 19% reduction in Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR), compared to 2014.
Since its rollout in October 2013, approximately 2,400 employees have participated in a training and coaching program called Fighting Fatalities.
There were 107 PFOs recorded in 2015. Approximately 86% of these incidents had no injury associated.
