In today’s complex business environment, it takes an operational team to bring the right combination of multi-disciplinary experience and core values to deliver the potential our mines and operating assets can achieve.
We have developed an operational excellence framework to achieve a new level of efficiency and productivity, as well as leverage cost-management techniques, to strengthen our business.
The foundation to growing a successful natural resources company is the quality of its assets, people, processes and operations. At Cliffs, we have an operational excellence approach to managing our assets. We are transforming the organization by enhancing our processes to move toward a business improvement culture with a focus on quality.
We are committed to continually improving our performance at every operation around the world. Currently, we are in the process of standardizing our safety measurements and methodologies across the organization.
We drive safety through a systems approach focusing on:
- Governance and structure
- Proactive initiatives
- Site implementation plans
All employees are champions of our objective to achieve an industry-leading safety performance.
Our Global Operations group is responsible for the production of the minerals we market:
- Iron ore and coal mines in North America and an iron ore mining complex in Western Australia.
- Minority ownership positions in joint ventures on multiple continents.
- A major greenfield chromite project in northern Ontario, Canada. These three world-class chromite deposits are expected to position us as the largest North American producer of ferrochrome once production commences.
