Centennial Coal Chooses Dyadem to Standardize Risk Assessment

    TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ -- Dyadem, the market leader in Quality Lifecycle
Management and Risk Lifecycle Management solutions today announced it has
signed a new deal with Centennial Coal Company Limited, the largest
independent coal producer in Australia.
    Dyadem's software was selected by Centennial to conduct risk assessments
and provide management solutions to minimise risk and maintain safety at its
12 New South Wales-based mine sites. The ability to monitor and mitigate risks
related to job safety, process hazards, machinery reliability and other
operational and environmental aspects allows Centennial Coal to develop vital
risk profiles for each of their sites. These profiles will assist Centennial
to improve safety, increase mine productivity and protect the environment and
therefore support a sustainable business model.
    Reducing risk and improving safety are the hallmarks of the mining
industry. In addition to monitoring mine ventilation, nauseous gases and other
mining related hazards, Centennial is committed to sustainable development and
is diligent in preventing, monitoring and reducing any environmental impacts.
Using Dyadem's risk assessment and management solutions, Centennial can
evaluate procedures closely, and easily identify any high-risk processes which
may result in an impact on the environment.  This will ensure each sites
regulatory compliance and further support the company's place as a responsible
corporate citizen.
    "Managing safety standards and eliminating risk factors is an important
part of our management philosophy," said John Hempenstall, Chief Risk Officer
for Centennial Coal. "Our emphasis at Centennial Coal is to stay ahead of the
regulator.  We don't wait for them to tell us how to make it safe -- we take
steps to ensure we are safe and environmentally responsible."
    With 12 sites spread across New South Wales, Australia, maintaining
consistent risk management standards and proactively identifying high-risk
factors has been a time-consuming and resource intensive process for
Centennial Coal. Dyadem's risk assessment and management solutions connect a
variety of risk assessment methodologies together enabling Centennial Coal to
use a single, integrated platform for managing risk across all its locations.
    "Standardization and user-friendliness were our top priorities when we
chose new Risk Lifecycle Management software," said Hempenstall. "Each of our
1600 employees shares the responsibility of reducing risk at our facilities.
Dyadem's software empowers our managers by cutting down on the time they are
spending on paperwork and providing a consistent format for everyone."
    "In the mining industry, managing risk is crucial not just as a
compliance requirement. It is part of being a responsible corporate citizen,"
said Kevin North, President and CEO of Dyadem. "Our software will assist
Centennial to maintain its firm commitment to safety and risk management."
