POINTMAN ADOPTED BY IAMGOLD TO IMPROVE SAFETY OPERATIONS
Iamgold Corp. has adopted Prostar Holdings Inc.'s flagship software application, PointMan, to improve its safety operations.
"We take great pride in taking every measure possible to ensure the safety of our employees and the environment. Safety is at the forefront of all our mining operations," stated Philippe Gaultier, vice-president of development projects at Iamgold. "By adopting PointMan, we feel confident that we are implementing a world-class utility mapping solution that will provide us the ability to identify any utility infrastructure that is buried in the ground, which can be a serious concern in terms of worker and environmental safety, as well as operational costs."
Iamgold employs approximately 5,000 people globally and is committed to maintaining its culture of accountable mining through high standards of environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices, including its commitment to Zero Harm, in every aspect of its business.
"Having a global mining company like Iamgold adopt PointMan into their mining operations is a major milestone for us," stated Page Tucker, chief executive officer of Prostar. "Not only does it open the door to another global industry, but it also proves that PointMan addresses the growing concern of not knowing where buried utilities are located, a problem that adversely impacts the safety of the public, the worker and the environment in a multitude of industries."
