HEALTH AND SAFETY
Strandline is committed to a workplace free from injury and harm and ensuring safety is always our highest priority. Strandline’s performance based culture promotes continual improvement and excellence, underpinned by a relentless focus on health and safety leadership, encouraging the right behaviours and embedding robust systems and processes.
Our exploration, project and operational activities inevitably have inherent risks and Strandline’s employees and contractors are empowered to proactively identify those risks and implement effective control measures to mitigate the risk to an acceptable safe level.
Formal risk assessments, management plans, visible field leadership, regular site safety observations and interactions, auditing, diligent reporting, emergency and crises readiness and “keep it simple” processes and practices are key elements of our safety approach.
Ensuring sustainability is paramount to Strandline and we strive to drive industry best practice in the areas of environmental management and community engagement.
Strandline’s objective is to minimise or avoid (where possible) impacts to the environment and communities we operate in.
Strandline actively collaborates with stakeholders to improve our understanding of the challenges and opportunities of every situation and consider a broad perspective when implementing practical solutions that drive positive regional benefits.
Vigorous and frequent identification of risks, evaluation and implementation of controls provides Strandline the process for de-risking our exploration, project development and mine planning activities.
All environmental and community related incidents are reported, investigated, with remedial actions followed through and learnings captured and communicated.
Key initiatives across our development projects and operational activities include:
- Minimising physical footprint
- Energy efficient mine design
- Water and waste minimisation and recycling
- Environmentally sustainable material sourcing
- Sustainable site management practices
- Rehabilitate and offset, as appropriate, impacts to biodiversity
- Increased use of renewable resources
Strandline, through our pursuit of continuous improvement and operational excellence is committed to delivering reliable, high quality solutions and products in a timely, cost effective and professional manner. Strandline implements management systems with the view to align with internationally recognised standards and best practice.
Strandline encourages ownership and “pride in work” by effective leadership, communication and documentation of quality expectations. Quality requirements are integrated into business workflows and decision-making processes across the various disciplines of the organisation. Conformance to the relevant legislation, regulations, contracts and industry standards is a fundamental operational requirement.
Operating with integrity across every function of business provides Strandline with credibility, reliability and fosters trusted long-term working relationships. Our stance on anti-corruption and doing what’s ethically and socially right provides a consistent grounding for decision making.
Participating in regular and transparent engagement activities with stakeholders (including landholders, communities and government representatives) enables Strandline to understand and prioritise the sustainability issues of high importance. Respecting the beliefs, customs, culture, sensitivities and the underlying rights of stakeholders contributes to sustainable outcomes.
Strandline adopts a holistic approach to the management of strategic, financial and operational risks, to allow opportunities and threats to be identified and managed appropriately.
Strandline’s risk management policy and appetite statement sets out structured and systematic processes for the identification and management of risk in areas such as harm to people, environment, quality, reputation, stakeholder relations, governance, company and company objectives.
The Board, through the risk management policy, delegates responsibility for identifying and managing risks to management, who in turn have an obligation to report to the Board on risks which could have a material impact on the Company’s business. The Audit and Risk Committee assists the Board with regard to oversight of the Company’s risk management practices. Material risks are captured in a risk register and reviewed regularly by senior management and reported to the Audit and Risk Committee on a quarterly basis.
