RUC Hand Safety Program

RUC Mining is always striving to do better, so on a regular basis we audit our safety systems and see what we can improve upon. Recently we discovered that there had been a high frequency of hand injuries over the past five years (2016 to 2020).

The confronting statistics displayed that RUC had over one hundred and twenty hand injuries with twenty of these injuries progressing into workers compensation claims. Not only was this a huge cost to the business (on average $26,512 per claim) but more importantly these unnecessary injuries, which could have been avoided impacted our dedicated employees and immediate family members.


This initiative is ongoing, and aim’s is to reduce the potential risk of hand injuries, through education and awareness.
