Employee health and wellbeing is also a priority.
This is reflected in a medical and fitness for work program to ensure employees’ health is assessed and advice and education provided. The program includes maintaining a site free from the effects of alcohol and other drugs, managing fatigue management, and physical and mental fitness. There is also a focus on early intervention programs to enhance injury management practices and provide employees with faster recovery times post injury.
Employees and their immediate family have access to a Company-provided Employee Assistance Program, which offers free, independent and confidential counselling to assist with personal issues that may have an impact on work.
Other initiatives include workplace first aid training, ergonomic risk assessment of work areas, and training in strain injury prevention.
