Safety is not the absence of events; safety is the presence of defenses. This scorecard reflects that belief and that we are on the right path.
As part of our Continuous Improvement journey, the culture of safety is always evolving at Gold Eagle. Our goal is to help us learn from one another. We ask operators to trust and communicate differently with leadership, which is challenging at times. However, our team has stepped up to the challenge and is helping create a pro-actively safe environment for all of Gold Eagle.
