National Mining Association Independently Certifies Freeport-McMoRan to CORESafety System
November 17, 2017 - The CORESafety certification demonstrates Freeport-McMoRan’s commitement to their philosophy of Safe Production, which is demonstrated by the integration of health and safety practices in all aspects of their operational activities.
CORESafety is a voluntary safety and health initiative developed and facilitated by the National Mining Association (NMA), the U.S. mining industry’s national trade association. CORESafety participants agree to: commit to the CORESafety system; implement a functionally-equivalent version of the CORESafety safety and health management system; submit to NMA annual self-assessments of progress toward implementation of the CORESafety safety and health management system; and, if the company elects to become or maintain CORESafety certification, complete a third-party assessment of its safety and health management system to verify that it is functionally equivalent to CORESafety and submit the assessment report to NMA.
