The Commitment to Continuous Improvement
Mining-specific challenges require a mining-focused security response
Mining companies — and their security directors — compete in an industry facing myriad challenges on a daily basis, including cost containment, corporate social responsibility, risk mitigation, and uneven regulatory landscapes. Global players must also navigate shifting social, economic and political trends while answering to the public, employees and company stakeholders.
Industry leaders know that they must look for ways to address challenges and uncover opportunities in all areas of the operation. Finding a security provider that understands the issues and presents thoughtful and viable solutions can be a key differentiator in a mining company’s strategic direction.
One of the leading energy companies in the United States, Pittsburgh-based CONSOL Energy, Inc., has faced these challenges directly. In 2010, CONSOL had an assortment of security companies supplying manned security services across more than 130 facilities in six states. Larry McEvoy, CONSOL Energy’s Director of Security, began evaluating security providers in 2010 with two objectives in mind: a commitment to safety and a focus on continuous improvement.
