|Our aim is to fully integrate the HSECR System across the entire organisation and embed the HSECR as part of our stakeholder culture; and ensure that our HSECR systems remain proactive and forward-looking.
At the Board level, an HSECR Committee that includes the Chief Executive is responsible for formulating HSECR policies, reviewing investigations of any accidents, and evaluating independent performance audits and action plans.
Key sustainability issues are identified through the risk management process, which includes an analysis of likelihood and impact.
At the operations level, each business unit has separate programme managers specifically responsible for aspects of Health, Safety, Environment and Community Relations who report to the business unit manager and to an HSECR corporate co-ordinator. Each mine also has a 'Comisión de Seguridad e Higiene' (Hygiene and Safety Commission) comprised of representatives from the union and non-union employees as well as contractors who monitor and review performance on an ongoing basis.
The HSECR team reports to the Executive Committee every three months.
In 2010 the Sustainable Development Manager position was created to advise on global CSR best practices and co-ordinate Board and operations-level initiatives.
In 2011 the Corporate Safety Manager and the Project Safety Superintendent positions were created to respond to the growing needs from the Company at the mine units and the advanced projects, respectively.
