In 2008, Anglo American provided a $1-million sponsorship of the Chair of Minerals Industry Safety Risk Management at the University of Queensland’s Sustainable Minerals Institute.
Under internationally respected risk-management expert Professor Jim Joy, much progress has been made in the area of defining and developing leading safety-risk-management practices across Anglo American operations. Effective management of risk is a key component to achieving the company’s goal of Target Zero – zero lost-time injuries and deaths in our business operations.
