Safety & Rescue

Productivity with Safety has always become the motto of our work culture. In the recent past there has been tremendous improvement in safety standard which is evident from the accident statistics below.  This has become possible with all out efforts by the management for creating safety awareness through vocational training, safety posters, safety slogans, safety talks, celebration of safety week, functioning of Pit Safety Committee. With persistent effort from the engineers and supervisory staff we have formulated and implemented the Safety Management Plan. Very recently review of our Safety Management Plan was conducted by a team of engineers constituted by the Director of Mines Safety, Bellary Region. Hutti Gold Mine is the first underground mine in the country to conduct this review
