PROFESSIONAL OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY
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.
Since January 1st, 2011, an Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS) based on the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard was introduced at the S&K Project. This standard will be replaced with the new standard, ISO 45001, and integrate across all new ISO management systems no later than 2020. This implementation effectively assists in international and national legal requirements, while committing to sustained improvement in OHS performance.
The OHSAS 18001:2007 British standard provides MYTCL with the elements of an effective OHSMS that can be integrated with other management requirements and help the organisation achieve better occupational health and safety performance as well as economic objectives.
There are so many aspects to creating and maintaining a safe working environment that sometimes it’s easy to get lost in it all. The key elements to maintaining an effective OHSMS is ensuring that everyone understands the components. The MYTCL Occupational Health and Safety Management System combines all the different elements in our workplace that need attention to ensure we provide a safe working environment for everyone who enters it.
The OHSMS systems make health and safety an integral part of our business’s core operations. By designing, developing and implementing an effective safety management system, we have methods for managing reporting, responsibilities, planning and resourcing to create a safer workplace.
