HEALTH, SAFETY & TRAINING
We are committed to high standards of health and safety with the protection of our people critical to our success as a modern sustainable mining company.
We have implemented strong safety and health management systems and controls to assist in the management of Mining Principle Hazards. These arrangements are subjected to regular review, inspection, and audit internally and by independent third-party auditors.
We will strive to improve our safety and health performance and share our progress with our people and our stakeholders.
We have a strong focus on development of our people to allow our workforce to work as multi-disciplined team and grow professionally during their time with Federation Mining.
We recognise that mining is a temporary land use and are committed to high standards of environmental stewardship for the full life cycle of our operation. We intend to operate beyond legal compliance to deliver against the obligations of our social license and help to shape industry leading environmental practices.
We seek to minimise our impact on the environment through the use of low emission machines, prioritising the use of renewable energy, recycling, and reusing water, progressive rehabilitation of our operations and returning land to a natural state at the conclusion of mining operations.
Our operations will be subjected to regular review, inspection and audit by independent third-party auditors.
We value our social license to operate and understand the importance of working closely with our stakeholders and the communities which we operate within.
We seek to engage and foster positive, constructive relationships with our stakeholders through regular engagement and sharing of information.
We will seek to partner with local business and prioritise the hiring of local people to support the regional economies in which we operate.
We acknowledge human rights as a fundamental principle to which every human being is inherently entitled regardless of their personal, social, economic, cultural, or geographic circumstances.
We recognise our role in protecting the human rights of all people involved in, or impacted by, our business practices and preventing the worst forms of human rights breaches, including instances of modern slavery through the development of a Modern Slavery Statement and Supplier Code of Conduct.
We are committed to creating and maintaining a positive and collaborative work environment, free of unethical, unlawful, improper, or undesirable conduct or practices.
We have established a Whistle-blower policy and a hotline which has been rolled out to our team. The Board has oversight for any matter referred to the hotline which is managed by an independent third party.
