Hexagon’s Mining division and Proudfoot have announced a new partnership that, they say, provides the world’s leading mining companies a unique safety-driven solution to accelerate their pursuit of zero-harm.
By combining market-leading safety technology with a proven people-centric change methodology, the partnership helps to de-risk mine operations, so equipment is protected, and everyone goes home safely, the two companies said.
“Hexagon and Proudfoot know first-hand that mining successfully requires a balance between safety and productivity,” the companies said. “With so much focus on digital transformation, the combination of safety technology, and sustained adoption as enablers for productivity seeks to support all stakeholders, from mine operators to mine investors.”
Hexagon’s Mining Division President, Nick Hare, said: “There’s nothing more powerful to me than knowing that our technology truly is saving people’s lives. Together with Proudfoot, we can ensure our solutions are backed by a proven people-centric change methodology. Zero harm demands nothing less.”
Pamela Hackett, CEO at Proudfoot, added: “We know that great things happen at the intersection of people and technology. We are thrilled to partner with Hexagon so that together we can support mining companies around the world to achieve a zero-harm culture that drives safe operations.”
Hexagon, a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions, offers mine safety systems for collision avoidance, operator alertness, vehicle intervention, personal protection and slope monitoring, while Proudfoot is a leading operational management consulting firm, specialising in operational and digital transformation programs.
