Environment, health and safety
At SunHills Mining protecting the safety and health of our employees and the environment is a core value.
It is important employees and contractors understand their jobs, are properly trained, and arrive at work mentally and physically capable to safely perform their work and follow safe work practices.
Through effective training, planning and implementation of safety programs, hazards can effectively be eliminated or controlled. Our safety team reviews our practices, conducts audits and updates policies and procedures to ensure the highest standards for the health and safety of our employees and the environment.
Our employees must have the proper training for the jobs they perform, complete hazard assessments, use the proper tools for the job and must conduct themselves in accordance to our policies and procedures.
At SunHills Mining, safety is everyone’s responsibility. No job will be done, unless it can be done safely.
