People are at the heart of our business and we adhere to our values of safety, respect, dignity and the fair treatment of our employees.
The safety of our employees is our number one priority. In 2019, Siguiri recorded zero fatalities, extending the four-year fatality-free period.
Health protection, promotion and the optimisation of health and wellbeing among our employees and communities remain Siguiri mine’s key priorities. We continued with constant monitoring and control of workplace exposures to dust, noise and lead, which are important occupational health risks.
Non-occupational lifestyle and community health risks such as malaria is endemic in our African operations. Siguiri continued to roll out malaria control programmes that extend beyond employees to surrounding communities. These programmes use various methods spanning from community based indoor residual spraying to distribution of insecticide treated bed-nets to community members.
