Think safe. Work
safe. Live safe.
That's the Rosebud Way.
Safety is something we all take seriously at Rosebud, and that's
how it should be. We've built this company around the quality of
our people, and our future relies on keeping people safe.
At the Rosebud Safety Training Center, you see this in action.
Employees from all over the company come here to learn the latest
in safety techniques that they then take back to the mine. This
centralized approach helps keep everyone on the same page and
allows us to be as safe as possible.
