Strengthening Asset Integrity practices at a Zinc-Lead-Silver Producer

Published: 2021

CHALLENGE

A large multi-site mining and smelting company, specializing in zinc, lead and silver mining and production, spent two years strengthening its safety practices and performance but realized it needed support with accelerating improvements in process safety management (PSM). The company engaged DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) to assist it, in particular with the development of a Mechanical Integrity and Quality Assurance (MIQA) framework.



SOLUTION

DSS designed a comprehensive plan for developing and implementing a robust MIQA framework. Selected company leaders were also trained and coached to develop MIQA champions, with the critical role of driving full-scale implementation and sustaining new MIQA practices. In addition, DSS trained frontline staff in the effective adoption of MIQA systems and processes.
