TIKS, a leading provider of enterprise WHS tools announced today that it has been named a finalist for the 2017 Mining Prospect awards for Excellence in Mine OH&S. The Australian Mining Prospect Awards are one of the nation’s most prestigious awards aiming to encourage, recognise and reward excellence in the Australian mining industry.
Mining has always been a part of Australia’s landscape, playing a major part in the development of this nation from its early days.
Despite the mining boom coming to an end and the industry slowing down economically, the sector itself hasn’t come to a stop, instead focusing on becoming more efficient and productive in the face of a global downturn.
