Cardno wins mine safety award

Professional infrastructure and environmental services firm Cardno’s rigorous commitment to safety has been recognized with an award from the mining industry.

The company received the Safety Award for 2015 Performance from the Utah Mining Association (UMA), which cited Cardno’s comprehensive and corporate-wide Zero Harm safety program.

In 2015, the initiative recorded 4,661 working hours with zero reportable injuries, incident rate and fatalities, as reported to the federal Mine Safety Health Administration.

Cardno’s senior consultant and senior hydrogeologist Jeff Davis accepted the award at the UMA’s 5th Annual Mining & Manufacturing Safety Conference on April 7 in Salt Lake City.

“Our consulting work in Utah emphasizes safety in every aspect of mine operations,” said Mr Davis. “We collaborate with our clients to improve their operational safety protocols and participate in state-wide safety committees. This award is a great achievement for our staff who understand the importance of creating a safe workplace.”

Founded in 1915, the UMA is the mining industry’s leading voice in the state for advocacy, public education and business development.
