John T Ryan Award

The John T. Ryan regional award is a symbol of premier safety in mining and has been given out since 1941. Trophies are given each year in a number of categories to Canadian mines who have recorded the lowest reportable injury frequency per 200,000 hours worked from the previous year. Vale’s T1 mine is the regional award winner for 2012. Vale has won this award on a number of occasions including the National Award for Metal Mining in 2004 and 2010 and the Regional Awards in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and again in 2012.
