The Belle Plaine team also placed first in surface firefighting, surface proficiency and surface practical skills. The Mosaic Colonsay team placed first in underground firefighting, with our Esterhazy K2 team placing second in this category. The Esterhazy K1 team was runner-up in the underground mine problem and overall underground mine rescue competitions.

“Mosaic’s emergency response teams consistently excel in mine rescue competitions, and the recognition is gratifying,” said Norm Beug, Senior Vice President of Potash Operations at Mosaic. “But what these wins really highlight is Mosaic’s excellent safety culture. We are dedicated to the relentless pursuit of an injury-free workplace, and the performance of our teams in this year’s competition demonstrates our commitment. Thank you to the team members for your hard work and dedication to safety at Mosaic.”
