Tiger Resources Ltd. has reached 2 million man-hours without a single injury at its Kipoi copper project in the remote Democratic Republic of Congo. Managing Director Brad Marwood said the number reflected a significant accomplishment amid rates elsewhere in the mining industry and is testament to a culture promoting safety and best practices.

“Our goal is to meet production targets while keeping our people safe with zero injuries and zero illnesses, and protecting the environment with zero environmental incidents,” he said, while crediting General Manager Denis Baillargeon and his operating team.

“It is important to recognize that all of our employees have contributed to our success in achieving our safety goals by embracing the health and safety practices at Kipoi,” said Marwood, referring to a considerable asset in one of the world’s most mineral rich, yet difficult-to-access regions in the world.
