U.S. Borax strictly adheres to all workplace safety laws in the areas in which we operate. In the United States, operation facility employees undergo annual Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) training days where topics range from confined space and electrical standards to accident prevention and workplace harassment training.
We are open about our safety record. Our MSHA mine IDs are:
- 0400743: Boron Operations

Our workplace should be safe, respectful, and inclusive for everyone. In March 2021, Rio Tinto commissioned an independent review of our entire workplace culture to better understand, prevent, and respond to harmful behaviors across our global operations. The review was conducted by former Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick.
The report, which outlines 26 detailed recommendations, will inform work being carried out to improve how we prevent and respond to discrimination and unacceptable workplace behavior. Learn more.
