There are plenty of stereotypes out there about mines being very unsafe places to work. Of course, the stereotype continues that the owners cut costs by denying workers the safety that they need. Naturally, some of this is true, and some of this is false. There are mines in the world where these practices do exist, but probably not nearly as many as people may believe.
However, let’s pose a question which we can answer: can safer mines bring more profit?
In theory, safer mines lead to higher productivity, less stress in the workers, and therefore better results from the mine. However, the theory that cutting costs really does give the owners more money can seem seductive…and possible.
Not only do all workplaces benefit in production when employees are safer, but the business as a whole becomes more efficient, thus naturally cutting its own costs, by behaving in an employee-centric manner. Where people love to work, they love to improve their company as well as their working conditions. The company is made up of people who love their jobs and feel safe in a normally hazardous industry.
What about the earth? Can the earth benefit from safer mining practices?
