Sustainability

Close

TACORA Resources is a responsible mining company. We work to build our corporate citizenship, earn the respect of the regions in which we operate and meet our customer expectations. We are focused on keeping positive relations with our neighbors, thorough ecological stewardship, responsible mining and honest communications with all area stakeholders. We see these duties as critical, and these values are embraced and enforced by TACORA’s leadership. 

HEALTH & SAFETY

TACORA is focused on the personal safety of our employees, it is a crucial and core value. We encourage our employees to take safe work practices into their own hands and urge them to stop any unsafe act or operation quickly. Working safely enhances our efficiency and quality of operations which leads to a more productive team. The duty each employee has regarding safety is a deep-rooted value that everyone at TACORA uses on or off the mine site.

Awareness & safety instruction is taught at TACORA every day to ensure the competency in our workforce to distinguish, comprehend, and oversee hazards in the Mine’s operations. Safety training includes topics such as first aid, hazardous materials management, lockout, confined space, fall protection, and other programs aimed to provide the necessary tools to maintain a safe and healthy team. TACORA requires a drug and alcohol-free workplace as another means to help ensure the safety of all our employees.

ENVIRONMENT

TACORA takes pride in sound environmental management. Our operations are designed to limit ecological effects and promote responsible stewardship of the lands where we operate
