Think safe. Work safe. Live safe.
That's the Rosebud Way.
We all know mining and trucking have reputations for being
challenging businesses. But at Rosebud, we've been doing all we can
to change that reputation since 1979. Think about it this way: when
you dedicate yourself to hiring and keeping the best people, you're
going to do everything in your power to take care of them.
Our Safety Policy
Rosebud Mining Company regards the safety and health of our
dedicated and hard working employees to be a value that will not be
compromised. It is Rosebud's policy to provide a safe and healthy
workplace for all of our employees. This can only be achieved
through intelligent action, cooperation, and an understanding of
safe work practices.
Safety not only means compliance with rules and regulations, but
also the development of personal work habits and practices that do
not put ourselves or our co‐workers at risk. Safety and production
must be an integrated process; therefore, no activity is to be
deemed so important or urgent to justify the existence of unsafe
conditions, acts, or practices.
We as employees have an obligation to ourselves, our families,
and to those we work with to carry out our duties with the highest
regard for the safety of ourselves and our fellow workers.
