Dyno Nobel Receives CORESafety Certification

Dyno Nobel, a global manufacturer of explosives, is the first non-mining company to receive independent certification under what NMA calls its signature safety program.

Dyno Nobel Inc. has achieved independent certification under the National Mining Association's CORESafety® system. Dyno Nobel, a global manufacturer of explosives, is the first non-mining company to receive independent certification under what NMA calls its signature safety program.

"The safety and health of our employees and contractors extends far beyond the mines – it's a core value of the numerous supporting companies that make mining possible," said Hal Quinn, president and CEO of NMA. "With this certification, Dyno Nobel has not only proven its commitment to continuously improving safety and health at its operations, but also marked a significant milestone. We are encouraged by Dyno Nobel's efforts and hope that it inspires other companies serving the mining industry to take the CORESafety pledge and complete certification."

"Dyno Nobel is proud to achieve this level of safety certification and reaffirms our core value of Zero Harm for Everyone Everyday," said Nick Stratford, president of Dyno Nobel Americas. "Zero Harm is the foundation of our company's culture, and we engage with each employee every day through reinforcement of safety behaviors like Take5!, our five-step risk assessment tool, Safety Shares at every meeting, and many other activities to ensure the safety of everyone, every day is lived as our top priority."

CORESafety's approach to safety and health emphasizes accident prevention using a risk-based management system anchored in leadership, management and assurance. It is a voluntary initiative designed to go beyond what is required by regulations and is focused on a goal of continuous improvement with the aim of zero fatalities and a 50 percent reduction in mining's injury rate within five years of implementation. Since its inception in 2011, CORESafety participants have achieved a 74 percent reduction in fatalities, according to NMA.
