Digitizing safety practices
Coordinating thousands of workers across multiple countries is a challenge. Goldcorp’s workforce hasn’t grown up with smartphones and tablets; their teams are often work in remote, dirty conditions thousands of feet below the earth’s surface.
Before digitizing inspections, Goldcorp struggled to conduct enough meaningful inspections with and reporting key findings to stakeholders in the organization. Goldcorp previously had auditors carry paper checklists, take photos on a camera, then return to the office where they spent hours drafting a report. It took time, many man-hours were lost, and fewer inspections were completed as a result. That process doesn’t exist anymore. Goldcorp now conducts over 1,000 inspections per day. Management can see what’s occurring below ground in real-time.
