The Wyoming Mining Association annually recognizes mines that have operated at least 10,000 hours with the lowest lost-time incident frequency rates. Rawhide mine employees logged more than 442,000 hours without a lost-time incident, according to Peabody, and shipped 14.7 million tons of coal in 2012.
“This award is a tribute to the more than 200 Rawhide employees who collaborate daily to maintain a safe culture emphasizing teamwork and best practices,” said Peabody Energy–Americas President Kemal Williamson. “I’m proud of Rawhide employees for consistently setting a standard of leadership in safety.”
Rawhide has also received the Peabody President’s Safety Award for the best safety performance among the company’s surface mines. In addition, Rawhide marked a safety milestone through more than 640 consecutive operating days without a single reportable incident between July 2010 and April 2012.
