Kinross Assists Queen’s University with Workplace Efficiency

As part of our commitment to mining education, Kinross recently conducted 5S and 6S training (workplace organization methodology) for the Robert. M. Buchan Department of Mining at Queen’s University’s in Kingston, Canada. Michael Moore (Health & Safety Manager, Kupol) trained the staff and students within the department over a two-day period in late May.

The mining department requested the training to enhance their operational and safety structure beyond what currently exists. The first day focused on practical training on 5S and 6S principles and theories, while the second day involved hands-on experience with the class performing workplace audits.

In 2007, Kinross and Queen’s University partnered to create the Kinross Professorship in Mining and Sustainability. The Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining is Canada’s largest mining school and one of the largest in the world.
