Exploration and manufacturing in the mining industry can never be entirely risk- free but those risks must be minimized at every stage.
MSHEM now covers 100% of employees and contractors. It comprises a set of risk-based, integrated, and interlinked policy and EHSS framework documents that define the requirements to effectively manage EHSS risks at our facilities.
These 85 MSHEM standards meet the international and national best EHSS standards and practices. In 2021, the system was formally launched by our CEO for full implementation across Ma’aden. The implementation of the MSHEM standards will lead to fully integrated standards across Ma’aden Affiliates. This will help to achieve:
Consistency in EHSS compliance & methodology.
Consistency in EHSS language –Standardization of definition, scope, requirements, and verification process.
Sustainable EHSS performance.
Furthermore, a Ma’aden Assurance Program for the MSHEM standards was implemented to ensure risks are appropriately identified and mitigation measures to continue operations with identified risks are implemented and approved.
The first cycle of the MSHEM audit has now taken place across all Affiliates and core functions.
These specific initiatives are part of a wider culture transformation program (SafeSTEPS) across the organization. SafeSTEPS positions safety as everyone’s responsibility, not something that is solely down to a specific department.
SafeSTEPS and the implementation of MSHEM standards are already having a measurable impact on achieving our KPIs in this area.
Furthermore, KPIs for asset integrity have now been established by the Safety and Sustainability Board.
A suite of leading EHSS KPIs was established and made visible to the management to enhance focus on continuous improvements.
