Providing a Safe and Rewarding Workplace

Case Study
Promoting Road Safety to Children and Youth in Cuba
Sherritt is committed to the health and safety of our employees and the communities around our operations.
Sherritt’s operations are built on a zero harm health and safety culture. We work hard to minimize operational risks to our workforce and nearby communities, and engage with these important stakeholders regularly on matters of safety, security and emergency response. More broadly, employee engagement and development remain top priorities in ensuring we attract and retain the people critical to our business and its success.
In 2017, we:
  • Achieved peer-leading safety performance over a three-year period; the total recordable injury frequency (TRIF) decreased by 33%, while the lost time injury frequency (LTIF) decreased by 14%.
  • Met our TRIF target of less than 0.28 injuries per 200,000 work hours, but did not achieve our LTIF target of less than 0.11 injuries per 200,000 work hours due to an increased number of incidents in the Moa JV and Energas divisions.
  • Activated our crisis management plans twice for major storms Cyclone Enawo and Hurricane Irma; experienced no loss of life or major property damage in either case.
  • Signed the Catalyst Accord, which calls on companies to increase the average percentage of women on boards and women in executive positions in corporate Canada to 30% or more by 2022.
