Aurelia is committed to the health and safety of our employees, contractors and communities.

We achieve this through our Safe Metals program and zero harm philosophy where all workplace incidents and injuries are considered preventable. We strive to continually improve our health and safety performance through our annual planning cycle process.

Safety culture

Aurelia’s safety culture is incorporated within The Aurelia Way and is supports our Rules To Live By. Our Rules to Live By were developed in response to high potential risk incidents which have previously caused harm and/or fatalities in the mining industry. The Rules set expectations and guide individual behaviour.

Leading the Aurelia Way supports our safety culture by requiring people in supervisor and above roles to participate in our Lead Indicator program. Under the Lead Indicator program, leaders demonstrate visible safety leadership by partaking in proactive conversations, observations and inspections (including Safe Act Observations, Planned Task Observations, Workplace Inspections, Critical Control and HPRI Verifications), in line with a lead indicator matrix and schedule. This helps us to determine the effectiveness of our safety understanding
and controls throughout the business.

In FY22, we achieved >85% compliance with our Lead Indicator Program targets. Aurelia’s safety performance continued to improve this year
with a reduction in Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) from 9.1 to 8.7 per million hours worked. Significantly, only one of these injuries was a lost time injury indicating that the severity of reportable injuries has reduced significantly from previous years. No work-related illnesses were reported.

Rules to live by

We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our employees and contractors and the communities where we operate.

We believe every injury is preventable and no task is so important that it cannot be done safety. Our aim is to build a culture where everyone owns and actively contributes to achieving safe outcomes.
