Find out who won Kinross’ 2015 safety awards

Congratulations to Kupol and Dvoinoye, and Fort Knox, for winning Kinross’ 2015 safety awards.

In 2015, Kinross achieved its best safety performance in Company history so picking the best-of-the-best was not easy, as all of our operations achieved success worthy of recognition.

However, Kupol and Dvoinoye stood out from the rest to win the 2015 CEO Award for Best Safety Performance award. Both sites had the lowest overall total reportable injury rate and injury severity rate among all our operations last year.

Fort Knox won the 2015 COO Award for Most Improved Safety Performance. Over the past three years, Fort Knox has implemented a number of safety programs that has helped reduced the injury frequency rate from 1.99 to 0.56 reportable incidents per 200,000 hours. In 2015, the site also reached one year and two million hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI), while their Mobile Equipment Maintenance department reached nine years without an LTI.

J. Paul Rollinson, President & CEO, and Warwick Morley-Jepson, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, presented the awards last month. 

Other major safety achievements in 2015 were:

  • All sites met or exceeded expectations for incident frequency
  • Kettle River-Buckhorn received the Sentinels of Safety Certificate of Achievement from the U.S.’s National Mining Association
  • Round Mountain was recognized as Nevada’s “Safest Large Surface Mine” by the Nevada Mining Association for the second year in a row
  • Paracatu was classified as a GOLD category mine at the 2015 Top Health and Safety Award presented by the Brazil Safety Agency
  • Chirano placed second overall in Ghana’s National Safety Day competition and achieved multiple 2015 Mine Performance Awards including “Best Mine” based on occupational injury statistics

Many sites hit significant milestones without any LTIs:

  • Chirano –11 million work hours
  • Tasiast –10 million work hours
  • Kettle River-Buckhorn – four years

“Congratulations to Kupol, Dvoinoye and Fort Knox on their awards,” said J. Paul Rollinson. “We had our best Company-wide safety performance to-date in 2015 and I thank everyone across Kinross for continuing to make safety a priority each and every day.”
