This is the sixth consecutive year that Voisey’s Bay has received this prestigious national award and in doing so has set the record in that division. Over this six-year period, Vale has achieved 6,438,725 combined hours with a reportable injury rate of Zero at its Voisey’s Bay Mine Site in Labrador. Vale’s North Atlantic Operations and Asian Refineries Chief Operating Officer Dino Otranto said ‘I’m extremely proud of every single employee at Voisey’s Bay, each of whom made a significant contribution to achieving this national honour and in doing so, set a new record in the Select Mine category by winning for six consecutive years. This recognition demonstrates the commitment from all of our people at the Voisey’s Bay site to genuinely care for each other by actively identifying and managing risks in our workplace that have the potential to cause harm.”
