Health & Safety
We operate to established company and industry standards and processes which ensure provision of safe and responsible working practices across all our operational activities. These company standards encompass all aspects of our Health, Safety and Environmental management obligations, and are designed to meet and exceed the expectations of our employees, external contractors, government regulators, joint venture partners and the communities with whom we interface.
Our internal health and safety policies are aimed at:
- Ensuring healthy working conditions within an environment of complete security for employees and contractors; and
- Implementing operating standards that are legally and ethically compatible.
We are committed to ensuring our colleagues and host communities are kept safe and well, and to raising awareness of potential dangers related to our operations and locations where we operate. We ensure colleagues have access to affordable healthcare and aim to achieve top quartile industry performance on our occupational safety measures.
The active participation of our employees in all phases of our operations includes attendance at regular safety meetings, development of operational risk assessments, facility inspections and facility modification assessments. All these activities contribute to identification of potential hazards and allow for the application of an appropriate degree of mitigation to manage risk safely. In circumstances involving either injury or near-miss events, any subsequent incident investigation will usually include employee representation and is intended to identify perceived deficiencies which will ensure development and implementation of the necessary measures to prevent reoccurrence. The active participation of employees and on-site contractors contributes towards a robust approach to maintaining a strong safety culture across our operating environment.
