Kinross Achieves Best Safety Results in Company History

At Kinross, health and safety are our number one priority. We have one of the best safety records in the industry, and our performance in 2013 is a testament to everyone`s commitment to maintaining a strong safety culture.

In 2013, we reported zero fatal injuries for the first time since 2006. Last year also marked our best performance against key injury-related metrics in Kinross’ history: Total Reportable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) and Severity Rate (SR) (excluding fatalities). Our year-end TRIFR was 0.43 versus a target of 0.57, and year-end SR was 3.3 versus a target of 4.1 across the Company.

 

“We ended 2013 without recording any fatal injuries, and the lowest reportable injury and severity rate in the Company’s history. This is a significant achievement, and our best-in-class health and safety performance is a result of everyone’s collective effort and hard work,” says Hugh Ducasse (Vice-President, Health & Safety).
