Health and Safety

Integrity in safety 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 direct reflection of that value and 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, health, and welfare of not only our workers but communities and stakeholders alike;

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

Support everyone’s Right to Know about the hazards related to their work, their Right to Refuse dangerous work without reprisal, and the Right to Participate 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.

“I can categorically state that the Company has a ‘safety first’ attitude; our employees look after each other to make sure everyone gets home safely at the end of every shift.”

Darren Parry, Health and Safety Manager, B2Gold Corp.
