Health and Safety
Westgold Resources is committed and focused on delivering sustainable value for our people, shareholders, stakeholders and the communities in which it operate.
When it comes to our operations, ‘sustainability’ means responsible environmental management and placing great importance on the safety of our employees and contractors as our business grows – to ensure that we are seen as safe and responsible stewards of the environments in which we operate.
Westgold’s approach to sustainability addresses the key pillars:
We manage the impacts and potential impacts of our activities, in line with Westgold's sustainability framework.
Safety is our first consideration in everything we do. We are committed to protecting all our employees, contractors and site visitors, to building a strong safety culture based on both individual and shared responsibility, and to drive continual improvement in our safety performance
The Westgold sustainability framework and our Health and Safety Policy provide the context for the setting of our health and safety objectives and targets and the implementation of our Health and Safety Management System.
All personnel, contractors and visitors have a duty to carry out activities at our Operations in accordance with the Health and Safety Management System. At all levels, personnel have a duty to demonstrate that they are responsible for their own and fellow workers’ health and safety by complying with the system’s requirements.
We focus on achieving and maintaining a health and safety conscientious culture. We do this by promoting awareness of health and safety, ongoing education programs and initiatives and competence based training to support the Health and Safety Management System.
The program revolves around principal hazards identified at Westgold operations and Life Saving Rules implemented with an intended focus on fatality prevention.
