Health and Safety

We aim to operate a safe workplace that is free of injuries and fatalities through a strong focus on occupational health and safety.

We provide visible leadership and our management is accountable for safety performance and for ensuring employees have the knowledge and skills required to perform their work safely.

We encourage employees to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of their colleagues. We encourage them to extend this behavior to within their own homes and communities.  

We implement a combined health, safety and environment management system in line with our Corporate Practice.

We are proud of our work in creating a robust health and safety culture. Our efforts in this area were most recently recognized by the Philippine Government’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources with the Safest Mine Award for 2010 (exploration category).

In 2010, we also received the Award of Distinction from the Safety Organisation of the Philippines, Inc. (SOPI) for achieving five million man hours without lost time due to an injury.
