Health

Introduction

Our employees are our most important asset. Protecting, promoting and enhancing the health and wellbeing of our workers is as vital as protecting their safety. We do this by identifying, and managing, the key health risks to which they are exposed. This includes minimising occurrences of occupational illness, supporting our people in leading healthy lifestyles and in their fitness for work, and helping them to remain healthy as they travel and work at our more remote sites.

We operate in a number of countries where the prevalence of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other tropical diseases is high, and as well as managing these diseases in the workplace, we are committed to helping establish health programmes for our local communities.
