Hexagon’s Mining division has been recognized for Excellence in Safety in the 2020 Mining Technology Excellence Awards. The awards celebrate innovation and excellence within the mining sector and aim to “provide a platform to the individuals and companies that are driving change and achieving remarkable feats in a time of crisis and uncertainty”.
Judged by a panel comprising industry leaders, analysts and Mining Technology’s editorial team, the Excellence in Safety Award celebrates Hexagon’s market-leading MineProtect portfolio. The portfolio integrates systems for collision avoidance, operator alertness, personal protection, vehicle intervention and slope monitoring.
“Like our customers, we believe the most important assets coming out of a mine are the people who make mining possible,” said Hexagon’s Mining division President, Nick Hare. “We are thrilled to receive this award, which recognizes the progress Hexagon and its customers are making to protect people and equipment.
“It’s powerful to know our technology is saving lives.”
Mining Technology’s Excellence in Safety Award is the latest accolade for the MineProtect portfolio. In 2019, HxGN MineProtect Operator Alertness System won Mining Magazine’s Safety award. HxGN MineProtect Vehicle Intervention System won in the magazine’s same category in 2017.
