Zero harm is always our target. Zero harm to all people as we responsibly operate our assets to their full potential. This focus on safety guides everything we do.
We believe in everyone’s right to physical and psychological safety. Everyone deserves to be safe at work and feel safe about coming to work because they are respected and accepted.
Everyone at St Barbara has a responsibility as individuals, or within their work group, to apply the appropriate behaviours and work practices that contribute to maintaining a healthy, safe workplace.
To achieve and maintain this vision requires strong visual leadership, the involvement of all employees and contractors with a genuine and proactive approach to caring for each other and the environment we work in.
St Barbara is the only gold mining company conducting regular gender safety audits. These audits have been regularly conducted at our Simberi Operations in Papua New Guinea since 2016, and at our Leonora Operations in Western Australia since 2018. They are a valuable tool in creating a safe and inclusive workplace for our people.
