The Safety Engagement of Sask. Employees in the Mining Industry (SESEMI) research project is a large, multi-disciplinary, and multi-institutional project dedicated to enhancing the safety engagement of industry employees.

Our team of passionate researchers care deeply about the safety of industry members and thus have dedicated their expertise in Psychology, Nursing, and Education to this important research project.

We recognize the Saskatchewan mining industry’s strong commitment to safety and seek to build upon the existing strengths and expertise of industry partners to offer innovation and the capacity to further improve safety attitudes and behaviours of industry employees. This is possible through enhancing the companies’ cultures of safety and the practices of safety training and engagement.

The overall goals of the project are:

  • to increase understanding of socio-cultural aspects and psychological mechanisms that account for varied levels of employees’ safety engagement;
  • to inform understandings of cultures of safety both on-site and outside the work environments;
  • to build upon existing knowledge and expertise to further enhance safety education and training.

This project has far-reaching goals to benefit employees as well as their families and communities and to promote economic security with reciprocal gain to industry and macro economies.
