Kinross Gold 2012 Annual Report

Health and Safety: The health and safety of our people is our number one priority

  • Achieved a reduction of 67% in our Total Reportable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) over the last five years. The TRIFR was reduced from 0.91 in 2011 to 0.57 in 2012. Tragically, two employees were fatally injured in 2012. We remain firmly fixed on the goal of eliminating all accidents at our sites.
  • Working with regional health and safety personnel, developed and implemented new company-wide Health and Safety Standards. The revised standards better articulate our corporate goals and prioritize performance expectations, while enabling each region and site to work in a manner that best suits its environment, workforce and cultural needs.

We significantly reduced frequency rates of lost-time injuries and total reportable injuries, exceeding industry standards
