Health and safety
Safety is a core value and a major priority. We believe that all injuries are preventable and our goal is zero injuries. Wherever Rio Tinto operates, the health and safety of our employees is our first priority.
Ongoing education for all employees
At Simandou, we are building a culture of visible leadership and ongoing education about safety. This applies to all employees, including contractors, at all levels of the business.
We place uncompromising emphasis on hazard identification, risk assessment and risk management. We measure assurance through operational, corporate and external auditing and reporting processes.
A healthy workforce contributes to business success. We are committed to preventing new cases of occupational disease. Our target is to achieve a significant reduction in these cases year-on-year through continuous identification, evaluation and control of workplace exposures.
