The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups: proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises; reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred. The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies: live longer face less crises do better in financial terms have a better corporate reputation Crisis prepared companies: suffer fewer crises recover faster are more profitable The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive! There are no immune industries... mining is as susceptible to risk and crises as any other industry. This course will show you how to be proactive, and give you the background and tools to evaluate risk and to plan and prepare for crises. In short, it will show you how to engineer for success in mining.

This course introduces an approach to local economic and community development that focuses on the creation of a "parallel economy" in communities impacted by the extractive industry - an economy that may be inspired and sustained by the increased population and economic output of the mine but that is entrepreneurial in nature and focused on strengthening local capacity for wealth creation. Enterprise Facilitation® is a community development methodology whose aim is to assist local, self motivated entrepreneurs to transform their own ideas into viable enterprises. The approach, used in community development for the past 25 years, has come to the attention of mining companies for its ability to engender not only sustainable development in communities but also a local "can do" attitude that promotes community pride and long-lasting gratitude for the providers of the Enterprise Facilitation® service.

Today, sustainability is the key to the future success of mining and we carefully consider the long-term impacts of operations on our local communities. Sustainability means we consider the economical, environmental, cultural, and social aspects in the development of our operations as we strive to benefit local communities in the way we benefit from operating as their neighbours. Sound environmental practices result in improved air, water, land, and heritage resources. Benefits accrue to the environment, our people, our families, the broader community, and future generations. They also result in credibility with local communities in being able to manage the local resource and access to further resources in the future. Your company should be committed to providing guidelines, management, personnel, and resources necessary to minimise potential adverse effects of its operations on the environment and human health.

This course is the first of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Preparedness, i.e. how to start managing and preparing for an environmental emergency. The second course focuses on Environmental Emergency Response. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site Emergency Management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into three parts: Part 1: Environmental Emergencies, including discussion of their occurrence, outcomes, and risk analysis. Part 2: Corporate Governance, including discussion of corporate strategy, management, and an example of risk reduction. Part 3: Preparedness Plans, including discussion of plans to deal with possible or probable emerging emergencies or disasters, plans to manage after-effects of an emergency or disaster, an emergency preparedness checklist, and the level of emergency services typically provided by government.

This course is the second of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Response, i.e. how to respond to a variety of environmental emergencies. The first course focuses on Environmental Emergency Preparedness. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site emergency management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into four parts: Part 1 - The Generic EHS Emergency Response Plan Part 2 - Response Planning for Chemical Spills Part 3 - Response Planning for Oil Spills Part 4 - Response Planning for a Hazardous Gas Emergency Authors Ralph Gunness   Duration: 5 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Safety Level: Specialize Version Date: October 6, 2003   ​Need to train a team?

This training course helps trainees understand what is meant by Environment, Social and Governance (ESG), also known as Sustainability, what it means for them, why it is important to mining and how they can manage it within their own organizations. A vast array of ESG frameworks, principles, goals, standards, and metrics have been designed to support mining companies and their teams operate in a sustainable manner. This course will help trainees to understand which frameworks are relevant to their organization. It will also help trainees manage ESG within their own organizations, by using integrated risk management to include ESG into everyday decision making. Also covered will be how to monitor and disclose ESG effectively to stakeholders, and how to embrace the upside of ESG as a competitive differentiator. Embracing ESG as part of a strategy is important because different stakeholders are aligning around ESG now, not only consumers but also investors and insurers. Rapidly changing expectations of your stakeholders means mining needs to prove it can operate responsibly by managing ESG. For example, the energy transition from non-renewables to renewables requires mining to be done in a responsible way. The downside consequences of ignoring ESG outweigh the upside of embracing it. Up-to-date mining case studies will be used to explore currents trends within ESG and Mining. Practical tools and techniques will be applied to understand how we can learn lessons from case studies to improve the management of ESG and demonstrate this to stakeholders. Dates:          9 & 10 November, 2021 Duration:     6 Hours: 2 sessions of 3 hours  Time:           8:00 am - 11:00am  PST. Check the exact time and date in your city here. Price:           $499 USD See below for course policy   Learning Objectives By the end of the course students will learn: What is meant by ESG and how does it apply to them specifically; Which ESG frameworks and principles have been established for responsible mining, and how this feeds into the circular economy; How different stakeholders have differing ESG expectations, across the entire mining value chain; How they manage ESG within mining in a practical way, integrating this into the core decision making of the organization using enterprise risk management; How this approach improves governance regarding decision making and expectations placed on the board externally; How to effectively demonstrate they are mining responsibly by aligning to standards / frameworks / principles; What technologies can support ESG management and influence groups that can help e.g., the impact investing communities; and Reporting and communicating on ESG – how to tell their story without “greenwashing”.   Presenter  Dr. Sarah Gordon Having completed her PhD at Imperial College, Sarah went to work as a Geologist for Anglo American.
