Environment, Health and Safety

 

Our EHS policies and programs are aimed at fulfilling our goal of zero incidents at our operations. We continually monitor our plants and machinery, upgrade work systems and processes and conduct internal campaigns to embed a work culture that promotes EHS risk awareness and management as key values.

We have strengthened our commitment to reduce Ma’aden’s environmental footprint, shifting from a compliance-led program to a stewardship-based performance program that goes far beyond regulatory requirements.

We have streamlined our EHS policies, standards and practices, leading to a more efficient management system that is now managed through ‘Hemaya’ – Ma’aden’s state of the art safety management software. Our goal is to achieve excellence in EHS, which means providing a work and living environment that is healthy and free of injury while properly managing our environmental footprint.

Identifying and managing risks associated with EHS, constantly improving internal procedures and systems, complying fully with – and exceeding where possible – regulatory requirements, continuously engaging with employees to embed and reinforce an EHS culture and conducting regular audits are the most important elements of our program. These apply to all our business units and operating companies.

Ma’aden strictly requires its suppliers and contractors to adopt proper EHS practices on our sites. The requirement is incorporated into all contracts via the Ma’aden Suppliers Code of Conduct and Ethics.

Ma’aden shall:

  • Establish the framework for setting and reviewing EHS goals.
  • Conduct regular risk assessment and audits in its facilities to identify and mitigate EHS risks.
  • Communicate this policy to contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders.
  • Train employees and provide resources and tools to maintain job competencies.
  • Comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements, internal standards and all other requirements which the company adopts.
  • Assure safe operations of the company facilities.
  • Report all injuries or incidents sustained in the company.
  • Promote off-the-job and community EHS awareness.
  • Conserve resources and reduce waste.
  • Continuously improve the effectiveness of the company EHS management system.
