Transportation safety

Polyus operates more than one hundred vehicles and large mining machines on a daily basis across its sites.

The Company’s transportation safety is regulated by the Transportation Safety Policy and the Standard on Transportation Safety.

Our fleet is constantly being modernised and upgraded with advanced traffic monitoring and management systems. The majority of our vehicles are equipped with on-board monitoring systems that track traffic online and identify any deviation from the prescribed routes. The machines are equipped with three-point safety belts and rear-view cameras to reduce safety risks.

To reduce the number of road accidents, we regularly hold training sessions and campaigns to raise awareness. All drivers complete an obligatory defensive driving course to master skills for driving in bad weather conditions and road emergencies.
