Safety of our employees has absolute priority and we never justify neglecting its principles. For obvious reasons, due to the specific nature of our organization, significant OHS risks are identified in the Company. That is why we have implemented a comprehensive safety system to help all our Employees return home healthy every day. We organize the extraction, ensuring proper conditions at the site, guaranteeing appropriate procedures and providing workers with all required collective and individual protection equipment.

We only employ people holding appropriate qualifications and authorizations. We conduct extensive inspections of workplaces and check whether technologies, instructions and safety procedures are implemented and followed. During the inspections, we also review Employees’ knowledge of the risks they face and the use of appropriate protective measures. 

We constantly engage in awareness-raising talks with employees regarding accountability in the event of breaches to safe work practices and related accidents, breakdowns or near-accident events. During regular OHS training sessions, the background and causes of fatal, serious
and mass accidents in the mining industry are discussed. 

health and safety management system

The occupational health and safety management system covers all employees of LW Bogdanka and is based on the renowned ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 standards.

Best practices

Each Employee is obliged, within the scope of their duties, to check the conditions in their work station, in particular the tools and technical safety measures. In case of any irregularities, direct supervisor must be informed immediately. All Employees can also report a near-accident event. Every person employed by our company is also informed that they may refrain from performing a task when working conditions do not comply with OHS regulations and pose immediate danger to the employee’s health or life, or when the work performed by the employee entails such hazards being created to other people.

Our top priority is to reduce the number of occupational accidents, especially those related to movement in underground workings. We are constantly raising the standards of personal protective equipment and improving communication with the staff.

In accordance with our procedures, we identify work-related hazards and assess occupational risks on an ongoing basis. Supervisors conduct regular inspections of workplaces; inspections of work stations are also carried out directly by the persons assigned to them. Relevant services perform tests and analyses of the working environment parameters.
