At Westmoreland Resource Partners, LP, we operate some of the industry’s safest mines. Our “incident” rate for 2012 was 28% better than the national average for similar operations.
This strong safety record can be attributed to our employees’ cooperation and personal investment in our extensive safety program, which includes, among other things:
- Exceeding all state and federally mandated safety training requirements
- Safety Incentive Awards Program
- Safety tailgate meetings
- Utilizing experienced third-party professionals to conduct our blasting activities
