Health & safety is about valuing our people, our communities and the environment.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of the many thousands of people who work for and with us, whose communities and environments we share, and who rely on our products for their livelihoods and lifestyles.
Our commitment to health and safety, and to the environment, are central to our ongoing commitment to the sustainability of our people, communities and business.
We’re much more than a business – we’re a group of people who all work together and in many cases live together. So ensuring the health of every one of us, and helping to work for the health of the people in the communities where we work, are two of the most important things we do. It’s a big job - our plan is to keep improving our performance every day.
Wellness is about how a person feels and is able to cope with every aspect of their lives, so it extends far beyond the workplace. But it also affects how people do their jobs and how they interact with their fellow workers, so it’s part of our responsibility to work to ensure our peoples’ wellbeing.
Most of the people at work in our operations in Australia, Africa and South America are drawn from the local communities nearby. So it’s up to us to ensure that having South32 in their lives is a positive for the people who live near where we work.
One of our greatest responsibilities is to ensure that every one of our people goes home safe and well at the end of every day. We all work hard to create safe and healthy workplaces, and the range of activities we undertake to support their efforts is vast.
