Safety is one of our Values, which reflect our Purpose, our priorities and define what it means to work at Glencore. Our Canadian operations place safety as a top priority, no different from any other site of ours around the world.
We never compromise on safety. We look out for one another and stop work if it's not safe.
Many of our sites operate in accordance with SafeWork, which aims to drive a culture of safe operating discipline.
Most recently, in May 2023, Nickel Rim South Mine (NRS), part of our Sudbury INO, was awarded the 2022 John T. Ryan National Trophy for Metal Mines for the best safety performance in Canada from the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM).
Sudbury INO Recognized for Safety Excellence
Open and honest safety conversations
We know the reasons propelling our safety performance are the open and honest safety discussions we carry out across our business. While our industrial sites are each unique, we share a dedication to keeping our colleagues safe and aiming to ensure that they go home in the same condition.
Dating back several years, our Nickel Department began a series called Speaking SafeWork, an opportunity for employees to speak openly about safety, and to keep safety top of mind among employees and contractors. We invite you to read a few of their words to see what safety means to them.

Improving safety through innovation & technology
While we are proud to have our safety performance recognized, we must continue to do better until we eliminate preventable fatalities and injuries from our business.
Given the exciting times we live in with respect to innovation and technology, we are eager to capitalize on the benefits they can bring. As an example, we are exploring the use of advanced autonomous technology.
This makes it possible for miners to sit safely and comfortably above ground, working away from the risks present when working underground in mining operations.
