Mining Journal Global Leadership Report 2022
This report considers the evolution of safety in mining, including the key safety challenges and solutions of both the present and future.
Safety has long proved a critical issue in the mining industry. Traditionally, it is interpreted as the protection of stakeholders exposed to the hazards associated with day-to-day mining activities and mitigating the risk of harm and injury. However, research produced by Mining Journal Intelligence over the past couple of years has shown the traditional interpretation is evolving faster than ever, not least with the onset of COVID-19 and innovative technologies.The focus of this year’s report is informed by the theme employed in 2020 and 2021: ‘The C-Suite Agenda’. Here, we evaluated the top priorities for a mining company both today and in the future (10-year horizon).
Importantly, this approach revealed ‘Safety’ as the top current priority across both years. For the 2022 edition of report, we have therefore deep dived into why this is the case and what the concept of safety means for the resources industry into today’s world based on research conducted through our industry-wide Global Leadership Survey and executive interviews with 25 C-suite executives of the world’s biggest miners (>US1 billion market capitalisation).
The Global Leadership Report 2022 explores the broadening definition of Safety in mining through our Global Leadership Survey. The results prioritise and analyse key safety factors and developments both today and tomorrow from different stakeholder perspectives, supported by unparalleled industry guidance from interviews with C-suite executives of mining’s largest companies (>US$1bn market cap).
