Aeris is committed to the continual improvement of its Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) performance in order to ensure the highest standards of health and safety are maintained for its employees, contractors and visitors.
The Company has been working on initiatives to create an interdependent safety culture where employee input is valued and encouraged in the safety policy and procedure setting process. Independent consultants are also utilised to conduct safety performance and systems audits at each site to ensure the best OHS policies, systems and procedures are applied.
Aeris also recognises the importance of OHS training, with the continual review and implementation of up to date training programs at each operating location, to provide the highest standards of safe work practices, first aid and emergency responses.
The success of this approach is recognised with record lows of incident rates achieved in recent years.
Furthermore, Aeris has developed a counselling support service for its employees with a specialist provider to Australia's mining and resources sector. The free service supports employees who may be experiencing personal issues, with Aeris also providing flexible arrangements for travel to the service.
In support of ongoing health and wellness outside of work hours, employees also benefit from access to Ambulance Cover for emergency situations.
