Our sites are responsible for implementing safety management systems and procedures. We focus on continuously improving our safety systems, training, and processes, and by adopting leading technologies.

All our operations meet or exceed local health and safety regulations and have implemented the TSM Safety and Health Protocol.

Plans, Programs & Initiatives

  • The “Doing Safety Differently” program fosters an approach where workers are actively involved in problem-solving, communication and continuing learning.
  • The Pan American Silver Safety Pledge and Cardinal Rules set out our fundamental expectations and rules for safety at all sites, apply to all employees and contractors, and are incorporated into induction training and safety talks.
  • Expansion of our critical risk management program which focuses on preventing serious incidents and fatalities through training, culture change, site-specific action plans, field verifications, and comprehensive investigations of serious incidents.
  • Investigation of High Potential Incidents (HPIs), including those that do not result in injuries or losses, and incentivize the implementation of high hierarchy controls and preventative actions.

2024 Goals

  • Achieve zero fatalities.
  • Maintain a frequency of lost time injuries with a high fatality potential (LF-HPIF) of 0.31 or better.
  • Maintain a ratio of Lost Work Days [i.e. Severity] to exposure of Non-Fatal Lost Time Injuries (NF-LTIS) of 59 or better.
  • Minimize the possibility of incident reoccurrence by applying Corrective and Preventative Actions (CAPA).
