During 2007 a working group representing Anglo American Business Units from across the globe was formed to develop a ‘One Anglo’ Risk Management process. Professor Jim Joy, appointed as the Anglo American Chair in Minerals Industry Safety Risk Management at the University of Queensland, mid 2007, and a member of the working group explained:
“There are many world class features of the ‘One Anglo’ Risk Management education programme. It draws on leading risk management concepts, tools and applications.”
The programme builds on a wealth of expertise to identify risk management best practices. Insights gained, not just from the mining industry but from the nuclear, aviation and chemical sectors inform and shape this multi-layered programme. Anglo American has made this highly acclaimed and award-winning education programme available to the industry at large to contribute to systemic change.
This is GMIRM, the global minerals industry risk management programme.
GMIRM provides a high quality, globally available and consistent product for executing a step change in site level operational risk management, based on everyone making better decisions about risk.
The IP for GMIRM is owned by JKTech and the University of Queensland.
