Our Health & Safety
With every business decision we make, we first consider our value of “Life Matters Most.” It’s about using our safety protocols, tools and procedures so that we manage risk in our workplace to a level that ensures we all go HomeSafe at the end of every shift.

+ Ontario Operations HomeSafe Program
We believe in zero harm – to our people, our workplaces, the communities in which we operate and the natural environment. We all have a part to play in reaching our goal of zero harm through HomeSafe.
+ Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan
Vale maintains a robust and multi-faceted emergency response program. Although unlikely, an emergency is a situation or a set of circumstances which, if not promptly eliminated, controlled, or contained, could result in harm to people, property or the environment. Emergency plans and procedures are developed, in consultation with the workforce, to safeguard our employees and the community from hazards dangerous to their safety and health.
