Health and Safety

Effectively managing health and safety risks is essential to protecting our workforce and the communities in which we operate. In safety, this means ensuring we “do the right thing” every day, which leads to preventing injury and providing a safe and healthy work environment for our employees, contractors and visitors. Our Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Policy is a reflection of our commitment to a safe workplace. The execution of our OHS Policy consists of four elements:

Adopt global best practice standards, guidelines and operating procedures which detail the accountabilities, mandatory controls and requirements for managing our operations in a way that promotes and protects the safety, human health and welfare of not only our workers, but communities and stakeholders alike;

Measure performance to ensure continual improvement in our health and safety performance and ensure audits are conducted by third parties to verify results and the effectiveness of our OHS system, standards, policies and procedures;

Support everyone’s Right to Know about all the hazards related to their work, Right to Refuse Dangerous Work, and Right to Participate and have a say in decisions that affect health and safety; and

Hire competent and dedicated people who support our core values and the concept of individual and collective responsibility for health and safety.

“We are committed to the relentless pursuit of Zero Harm by continually investing in leading edge safety solutions and programs through employee engagement and facilitation and promotion of a resilient safety culture.”

Darren Parry, Health and Safety Manager, B2Gold Corp.
