Mining contractor Redpath has announced its Coal Division project team has achieved one year lost time injury free (LTI) as of May 22 this year.
It also announced the team more than doubled its one development panel during June, completing 1,216 metres.
The company remained recordable incident free for 90 days.
General manager of Coal Gavin Ramage said the statistics reflected the company’s safety culture and hard work.
“This is an excellent safety milestone by the team both for Redpath and for the mining industry itself and, along with the new development record, highlights that a strong commitment to safety and productivity can achieve outstanding results,” he said.
“The project team also completed a very successful production month in May, with no injuries being sustained, and it is our goal to continually build upon our safe operations with productivity achievements that are industry leading.”
The company is now looking to achieve one year Total Recordable Injury Free.
The Redpath Coal Division won its first coal mine contract in late 2011.
The mining contractor recently brought the world’s most powerful proven raise drill to South Australia.
