The Mosaic Company, 2012 Sustainability Report
The Relentless Pursuit of
an Injury-Free Workplace
The sustainabilit y of ever y organization begins
with the health and safet y of its people, and we
consider even one injur y to be one too many.
Mosaic is relentless in the pursuit of an injur y-
free workplace, and we work hard to deliver great
safet y per formance.
Therefore, it is with great sadness that we repor t
a fatalit y, which occurred on June 16, 2011, at
our Colonsay mine in Saskatchewan. While our
overall safet y per formance this past year was
significantly improved over the prior year, this
loss emphasizes the impor tance of our continued
ef for ts to take specific actions that will reduce
the number and severit y of incidents.
One example of these ef for ts is Mosaic’s policy
of repor ting near misses (incidents that could
have led to a repor table injur y, but didn’t),
which has helped our teams identif y potential
problem areas. In fiscal 2012, Mosaic’s
Recordable Incident Frequency Rate (RIFR) was
1.27 —
a 25 percent improvement over fiscal
Our Safety Index was 0.88 — a more than
percent improvement versus fiscal 2011.
Our Lost Time Incident Frequency Rate (LTIFR)
was 0.12 — a 33 percent improvement versus
fiscal 2011.
In addition, Mosaic has enhanced its
Environmental, Health and Safet y Management
System (EHS MS) by aligning with the
International Standards Organization (ISO)
standard and the Occupational Health
and Safet y Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001
standard. The implementation of the EHS MS
empowers over 2,000 Mosaic employees to
identif y, prioritize and reduce risks.
