New Gold is an intermediate gold mining company. The company has a portfolio of four producing assets and three significant development projects. The New Afton Mine in Canada, the Mesquite Mine in the United States, the Peak Mines in Australia and the Cerro San Pedro Mine in Mexico, provide the company with its current production base. In addition, New Gold owns 100% of the Rainy River and Blackwater projects, both in Canada. New Gold's objective is to be the leading intermediate gold producer, focused on the environment and social responsibility.
New Gold were managing their health and safety, risks, skills and training, environmental data, compliance, medical and industrial hygiene, and reporting through a variety of spreadsheets, documents and disparate systems. With such a large global workforce operating across multiple sites with differing languages, the ability to provide a system to support a streamlined approach to management and reporting was of vital importance to New Gold. A workforce solution across these areas of the business was sought which could meet the requirements of:
- Multilanguage (ability to configure system for different countries of operation)
- Multi-site support
- Browser and mobile accessibility
- Capture a range of Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) data
- Simplify the tracking and assigning of corrective actions
- Provide global notifications through a range of triggers
- Improved decision making and visibility through dashboard reporting
- Companywide adoption
- Streamlined training of one solution for immediate understanding
- Configurability to grow with the company
- Simpler and more effective reporting provided to those who need it on demand
