Safety is a priority at Premier Coal. Proactive hazard identification and extensive hazard and incident investigation systems are fundamental to the way we operate.

Premier’s elected occupational safety and health representatives meet regularly to provide direction and leadership on risks and risk management.  They receive nationally recognised training to assist in their important roles as well as their personal development.

Premier’s Mine Rescue Teams are made up of dedicated volunteers from across our operation. Rescue response capability includes dealing with serious incidents involving injuries, medical emergencies, firefighting, hazardous materials spills, vehicle road crashes, confined space emergencies, and search and rescue.

Premier’s commitment to safety extends beyond its front gate with active membership of groups including the Local Emergency Management Action Committee, Chamber of Minerals and Energy's South West Regional Occupational Health and Safety Committee, and the Industry Road Safety Alliance South West.
