Boart Longyear received a Safety Achievement Award from the Canadian industry organization, Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA), at the SMA Annual General Meeting Banquet and Awards held on March 2, 2018 in Saskatoon.

The SMA uses reported stats for safety incidents including first aid medical consultant frequency, medical incident frequency, modified work days severity, lost time injury, and days lost severity to base the recognition.

SMA is an industry-driven organization representing the mining and mineral exploration industry with over 25 mining operations in the province. The Saskatchewan Mining Association is an industry-funded organization that has been in existence for over 50 years. The SMA is considered by provincial and federal governments to be the Voice of the Mining Industry in Saskatchewan.
