U.S. Borax’s Boron Operations recently received a prestigious commendation from the National Mining Association (NMA)
. We are proud to share we were awarded the 2019 Sentinels of Safety Award for our outstanding safety performance in the Large Open Pit category.
The annual Sentinels of Safety awards recognize mining operations in 10 categories for recording the most hours in a calendar year without a single lost-time injury. A minimum of 4,000 injury-free hours is required for award consideration. The award categories reflect the safety accomplishments of both small and large mines.
We are honored to receive this award. Safety is the number one priority throughout all of Rio Tinto. Though 2020 has been a challenging year, this award is a testament to what matters most—keeping people safe.
