  Our people are our strength.

Our success comes from our people. We work in a safe and satisfying environment.

We take our responsibilities in the area of health and safety very seriously. Our health and safety management systems are a key factor in our decision-making processes. We aspire towards a goal of Zero Harm to people. This goal is an important driver for continuous improvement in health and safety performance across BlueScope Steel.

We have in place a comprehensive company-wide Occupational Health and Safety Management System. Its purpose is to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, contractors, visitors and the public.

We are committed to our goal of ensuring zero harm to our employees, our contractors and the communities in which we operate.

Our policy principles include amongst other that all injuries and work-related illness can and must be prevented and that excellence in health and safety drives excellence in business results. Health and safety are integrated into all our business management systems and processes.

We are totally committed to safeguarding and promoting physical, mental and social well-being of our employees. Besides the provision of adequate personal protective equipment, our focus also involves eliminating, reducing or isolating hazards wherever possible. The range of identified potential health hazards includes noise, vibration, hazardous substances, manual handling, driving and climatic conditions.
