Just like the process of vaccinating a growing global population, unlocking the planet's nickel resources is a long, complex and occasionally dangerous process.
At our Nickel operation in Barro Alto, Brazil, we follow a stringent set of operating standards specifically designed for the requirements of that location.
These range from the use of technology that makes the mining process smarter and more efficient, to comprehensive safety training for everyone who works with us. Sometimes, it's as simple as providing people with the correct pair of ear defenders or the right type of inhalation mask.
What's true for every site we operate is that our goal is ‘zero harm'.
It might not sound as scientific as the latest, cutting-edge immunisation discovery but it's no less important when it comes to keeping our employees safe, secure and protected in their jobs.
