Focusing on occupational health and employee wellbeing
Our revised strategic focus has introduced an integrated occupational health and wellness risk management framework as a proactive measure to prevent and mitigate known risks. The aim of this holistic approach is to achieve long-term health and wellness performance, maintaining a healthy workforce that is able to work safely and productively for the duration of their careers.
This focus involves:
- applying a cohesive risk mitigation methodology;
- competent and skilled occupational health professionals working according to uniform performance requirements; and
- supporting management systems that enable integrated performance reporting.
Risk-based occupational hygiene
Our risk-based approach allows us to evaluate, analyse, monitor and manage exposure and provide preventative measures for a range of occupational health risks. This includes a hierarchy of control for known exposure, from at-source elimination through engineering design, to exposure reduction strategies, including administrative controls and the provision of suitable personal protective equipment.
Medical emergency response
A fit-for-purpose ‘injury on duty’ and medical emergency management programme, including medical emergency response planning to limit the
potential long-term health consequence of workplace accidents, is in place for our global operations.
