National Initiatives

Across every Vale office, plant or job site across Canada, you’ll find employees empowered with a passionate commitment to protect the health and safety of every person in the workplace, as well as our loved ones at home. We help keep safety top of mind through these national initiatives. 

  • Our Pledge for ‘Zero Harm’

We are working collaboratively with all levels of management, our employees, the United Steelworkers, our contractors and  mining industry associations to build an effective culture of risk management. Our goal: Absolutely zero harm – to our people, our workplaces, our communities and the environment. We believe that responsible risk management is everyone’s job.

  • Preventing Injuries with Parachute

Vale is delighted to partner with Parachute, a national organization dedicated to preventing injuries and saving lives through education, knowledge and empowerment.
