The sustainability of every organization begins with the health and safety of its people, and we consider even one injury to be one too many. Mosaic is committed to conducting business in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, contractors, customers and communities. We are relentless in our pursuit of an injury-free workplace, and we work hard to build a strong safety culture and deliver great safety performance.

  • Mosaic has made considerable progress in enhancing its Environment, Health and Safety Management Systems (EHSMS) by aligning with the requirements of the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001 standard and the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001 standard.
  • Following successful ISO pilot projects at four facilities — Belle Plaine, Colonsay, Riverview and South Fort Meade — Mosaic aims to complete implementation company wide by 2015.
  • Mosaic introduced specific corrective action following the tragic fatalities of an employee at our Esterhazy mine in Canada in fiscal 2010 and a contractor at the Rozy pier in India in 2011. Across the board, we have expanded safety training of employees and contractors.
  • Effective EHS is the outcome of a commitment that doesn't stop at the end of the work day. Mosaic is investing in exercise facilities at several sites, safety kits for employees' homes and increased safety training. We're also encouraging our employees to look out for each other's safety and to feel confident about reporting EHS issues.
  • Mosaic not only tracks all injuries, but also the "near misses." Additionally, we have developed the Hazard/Aspects Matrix to analyze tasks and identify risks. This enables us to better identify and analyze our exposure to risk and to preemptively mitigate risks in an effort to prevent future incidents.
