The health, safety and wellbeing of our people, and the communities within which we operate, is at the core of our values and remains our number one priority.
Our robust health and safety management system defines a broad range of initiatives, which supports all employees returning home safely every day. It includes:
- the development and management of safe working procedures
- diligent identification of hazards and risks and attention to learning from hazard reporting, safety incidents and near misses
- equipping leaders with the resources necessary to promote safe behaviours, and
- extensive learning and development programs to both build capability and address the human factors that can lead to safety incidents.
Following the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, an even greater emphasis is now being placed on promoting mental health and wellbeing, whilst maintaining our dedication to reducing serious and preventable safety incidents.
In 2021, our Inclusion and Diversity Strategy was expanded from a gender equality focus to also consider Aboriginal engagement, flexible working conditions and inclusion for LGBTQI+ communities, cultural diversity and people who identify with a disability. This aims to create an organisation where all our people feel valued, trusted, authentic and have high levels of psychological safety. We will measure the success of this strategy through our annual Employee Opinion Survey (EOS) which tracks employee satisfaction.
