The aim of this publication was to provide a guide for mine managers to help them create a strong health and safety culture in their mines and to help prevent workplace injuries and deaths.
The issue of mine safety is a highly emotional subject that needed to be treated sensitively but also with sufficient impact to create change. We re-titled the publication to “People come first” and re-wrote the content to be user-friendly. We employed signage imagery to help readers move through the journey to implementing a ‘People come first’ workplace culture.
The document was printed on uncoated stock with a strong PVC cover and was spiral-bound – conveying immediately that this document is to be used and referred to regularly, as opposed to being read and shelved. Workplace safety requires ongoing and regular commitment.
