Mining and minerals

The mining industry is facing unprecedented challenges, from decreased commodity prices to an ever more complex operating environment. In this milieu, sustainability requires a stringent focus on physical assets. By containing production costs and keeping an eye to operational excellence, companies can reduce strain on their financial reserves.

Further to this, mineworker fatalities are becoming a keen focus area for stakeholders such as the local government, investors and mine operators alike. Engineered controls and the smart application of technology offer unprecedented potential to prevent the failure of safety barriers that are linked to physical assets and facilities. Considering our integrated approach to asset management, stakeholder health, safety and security, as well as environmental considerations, are aptly incorporated into our business model and as such our business processes and asset management offering are designed with HSSE as a key component of the value proposition.

This is where Pragma can help. Our offering, first introduced in 1990, includes asset management business processes, training material, tools and consulting capability, positioning us as a partner of choice for mining houses of all sizes. Implement our entire spectrum of services or select a specific solution to answer your precise needs; either way, you will benefit from improved performance, reduced costs and enhanced risk management.
