Health and Safety


The health and safety of our people is our highest priority and we remain committed to achieving our goal of zero injuries. We will never compromise on safety.

The Health, Safety and Environment Committee sets the direction for the Company’s continued commitment to operating its mines to the highest safety and environmental standards in accordance with legislative requirements.

Working with Yancoal’s executive and senior management teams, Yancoal’s Health, Safety and Environment Committee is chaired and led by members of the Yancoal Board, providing external oversight of the Company’s operating and reporting standards.

Together, management and the Committee continue to set the direction for a culture of continued improvement, with the leadership, capabilities, systems and reporting procedures needed to be a leader in safety and environmental management.

Health and Safety:

Each mine implements proactive strategies to update and monitor its safety standards, behaviours and reporting to ensure operations are aligned and focused on achieving Yancoal’s goal of zero harm.

Taking responsibility for the safety of all employees and visitors seriously, Yancoal continues to implement robust safety and risk awareness and management practices across all areas of its operations.

Recent site initiatives include the successful introduction and application of the Critical Controls initiative throughout the Yancoal Group, requiring every employee to understand and be aware of the critical risks in their workplace.

With all sites undergoing regular training sessions focused on specific Critical Controls unique to their underground or open cut environments, the initiative calls for personal accountability in every action to help ensure every employee returns home safely.

Under the initiative, sites continue to share their reporting and training practices, enabling Yancoal to act on its commitment to constant improvement and never compromise on safety.
