OHSAS 18001:2007 is a British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help the MYTCL organisation put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. It is widely seen as the world’s most recognised occupational health and safety management systems standard.
MYTCL’s focus is to use this system to promote a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework to:
Consistently identify and control health and safety risks,
Reduce the potential for accidents,
Aid legislative compliance, and
Improve overall performance.
With an incident rate far below the averages of the Australian continent, MYTCL pushes forward in lowering risks, eliminating serious injuries, and educating safety in a manner that inspires employees with an attitude of ‘Safety First – Job Second’.
This level of success is a direct consequence of MYTCL’s management and employees’ commitment to maintaining the highest health and safety standards possible. The ultimate goal for our mining company is achieving a zero-incident work environment. To that end, we devote ourselves to promoting an ingrained workplace safety culture by training employees, engaging in risk (re)assessment, measuring performance, rewarding achievement and adopting best practices.
In 2018 this standard will be replaced with the new ISO 45001 and will join the suite of ISO Integrated Management Systems.
MYTCL will then have 3-years to complete the transition and recertify to this new standard before 2020.
