Whitehaven intends to conduct business in a way that maintains a safe and healthy workplace for its employees, contractors, visitors and surrounding community. We are committed to achieving the goal of zero injuries by continually fostering awareness and cooperation in health and safety.
To achieve this goal the company has developed a comprehensive safety management system based on the risk management principles. The system recognises the company’s responsibilities to all persons working in and visiting our operations and is fully compliant with statutory obligations.
The system incorporates the elements of the Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZ 4801/2001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and is designed to promote and facilitate continuous improvement.
