The initiative is an industry-wide partnership built on a foundation of leadership, culture and health and safety systems with a goal of zero fatalities and a 50% reduction in rate of injuries in five years.

The initiative is an industry-driven approach to mining health and safety, designed to prevent accidents before they happen by utilising management systems that provide organisational competencies defined in 20 modules.

Each module includes performance expectations and timelines to ensure steady progress toward the goal of zero fatalities.

The CoreSafety system is customised to mining and based on successful plan-do-check-act safety and health management systems that have successfully improved health and safety performance across many industries.
