Highlights and overview > Safety policy and achievements
Safety policy

At The Aveng Group, we are committed to our responsibilities in respect of safety, which are integral to the way we do business.

When we conduct our business of building a lasting legacy that every employee, their families and future generations can be fiercely proud of, we develop, implement and maintain management systems for safety that are consistent with internationally recognised standards and which enable us to:
  • entrench safety as a value for our people which is never compromised in the pursuit of any other objective;
  • identify, assess and manage risks to employees, contractors, service providers and communities;
  • strive towards a world-class safety culture; and
  • meet and where appropriate, exceed applicable legal and other requirements.

In implementing this policy, we commit to open communication with our employees, contractors, service providers and communities to encourage a culture that reflects the intent of this policy. We are committed to continual improvement and will regularly review our performance and report our progress. We will ensure that this policy remains relevant to the needs of our stakeholders.

Responsibility and accountability

While we hold our leaders accountable for the safety of our people and expect our managers and supervisors to provide effective leadership in safety, we equally expect all individuals to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of others. Management of every operating group is responsible for the full implementation of safety management systems. This requires the allocation of appropriate resources and the provision of training, education, consultation, audits and monitoring to ensure legal compliance and achievement of a world-class safety culture.
