Health & Safety
Safety remains a top priority for the Company and is reflected in Kinross' 2015 safety record. Kinross' total reportable injury frequency rate declined 23% between 2013 and 2015, with zero fatalities in 2013, 2014 and 2015, marking these the safest years in Company history. The Company has also underscored the importance of mining as a springboard for shared prosperity. Kinross' economic benefit footprint, which the Company began measuring in 2011, shows that 73% of Kinross' revenue was spent in our host countries through wages, in-country procurement, community investments and contributions to the local tax base.
The Report's key features include a detailed stakeholder engagement table, which documents key issues and Kinross' response on a site-by-site basis, and provides insight into the positive influence of mining on the human development index in Brazil. Four video case studies illustrate the Company's progress related to the environment, communities, workforce and economic benefit.
