Responsible Exploration

Health & Safety

The PDAC’s Health & Safety (H&S) Program is a key element in PDAC’s strategic priority of responsible exploration. The mandate of the program is to build the capacity of companies exploring in Canada to improve their health & safety performance and achieve zero harm.

The three core activities of the H&S program include the annual health and safety survey undertaken in partnership with the Association for Mineral Exploration, an annual H&S short course offered at the Convention and outreach to various industry conferences on the topic of H&S.

If you are a company that has explored in Canada in calendar year 2017, please fill out the current health and safety survey

The information you provide PDAC and AME in the confidential health and safety survey will enable us to compile a comprehensive annual safety report, safety guidelines and other resources. Your organization becomes eligible for Gold, Silver or Bronze Safe Day Everyday Awards by participating in the survey.
