Safety: Our first priority
We will convey and update the safe information to all of our employees in order to create and contribute towards a secure work environment for employees, and where everyone goes home safely after every day and every shift.
Our approach to safety focuses on three core areas: fatality elimination, injury reduction, and catastrophic risk prevention including process safety. We maintain strong safety systems, standards and tools, and verify that critical controls are in place. We foster a culture that stops work if it is not safe.
A healthy workforce
Employees are provided with appropriate and on-going training and protective gear to prevent injuries and health risks, and to create workplaces that protect health and promote wellbeing. Guided by our health standards, our global health professionals identify potential trends, emerging health issues and key occupational health risks, and apply controls.
The health of employees and contractors are a priority for 9X Minerals and appropriate risk management systems exist for all production sites. The prevention is essential to our approach. Our health programme helps us manage material health risks by verifying that critical controls are reducing employees’ and contractors’ exposure to potentially harmful substances, physical energies and vector-borne diseases such as malaria. We consider the local factors affecting our workforce, such as type of resource, location and type of work, to ensure that effort is directed to the more important risks.
