The health, safety and wellbeing of Perilya’s people, contractors, suppliers, visitors and host communities is a key value for the company.
Perilya continues to follow a strategy of focusing on providing visible leadership, encouraging responsible behaviours and empowering individual responsibility for health and safety.
All of Perilya’s leaders are required to develop a personal safety plan outlining their contribution to improving the company’s health and safety performance.
Perilya’s safety management system is being re-designed to be consistent with the Australian/New Zealand Standard 4801 for safety management. The standard provides a solid framework to guide all aspects of safety management at Perilya’s operations, including the occupational health and safety charter and statements; departmental safety management plans; inductions and site security policy.
Perilya’s systems are regularly reviewed and submitted for internal and external audit to ensure continuing compliance.
Perilya’s philosophy is that all personnel share the responsibility for a safe workplace.
A range of occupational health programs are in place to monitor the wellbeing of employees.
Perilya’s fitness for work policy is designed to further promote wellbeing and a safe workplace by addressing drug, alcohol and fatigue related issues.
Perilya’s safety performance is closely and carefully monitored.
In line with mining industry requirements and best practice, Perilya has in place emergency response teams that can be activated in the event of a crisis situation and can provide support to the wider community if required.
The company’s emergency response training is nationally accredited and the teams have state of the art equipment to draw upon in a crisis situation.
