The health and safety system is based on setting annual occupational health and safety plans, training of employees, raising awareness and performance monitoring. The system is supported by a robust documentation system that ensures the maintenance of required registers, documents and renewal of required permits.
We incorporate risk assessment procedures into all our operations and activities. We analyse the probability for a hazard to progress to an actual loss event, as well as the likely consequences of such an event.
Our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (per 200,000 hours worked) has reduced significantly over recent years and we continue to target a zero-harm safety record.
We maintain a well-equipped on-site clinic, which runs 24/7, for both general health and emergency related services and is managed by a doctor and qualified nurse. An ambulance is available and the clinic can respond to emergency situations.
Tracking Health and Safety Performance
A core element of our management system is to assess performance and identify areas for improvement. We have formulated a multi-functional system which monitors our health and safety performance through:
• Evaluating the workplace environment for potential hazards to occupational health
• Evaluating the stability of structures
• Periodic alcohol and/or drug testing
• Ensuring that safety procedures and standards are adhered to
In the event of an incident, a comprehensive Incident Investigation and Reporting System is followed to analyse the root causes and provide recommendations for remedial actions.
