We strive to ensure that every individual within the Company understands that safety is their responsibility
One of the key initiatives to improve and encourage feedback from the workforce has been the quarterly safety award for the best safety suggestion, the winner of which receives a prize of $250.
A full time safety and fire team is based on site together with a fully staffed medical clinic and in 2015, all employees undertook a medical examination.
An integral component of the safety management system is training which was conducted for employees and contractors throughout 2015. Several key programmes included first aid training, emergency response, risk identification and reporting of near misses.
A central component of the health and safety management system is the regular reporting and management of safety statistics. A monthly Health and Safety Committee is held to review the data and report back to head office.
One of the major focus areas of 2015 was further development of the risk-based approach to safety. Where risks were identified, they were categorised and mitigation measures taken. Where necessary, further measures such as job safety analysis have been undertaken in order to reduce future risk.
