Health & Safety Legislation

Legislation defines a range of statutory duties both specific and general in nature, aimed at ensuring so far as is reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare of all employees at work.

Seabridge has full regard for the health, safety and welfare of all our employees and others who have occasion to be on the Company’s premises or who are affected by our operations. The Company recognises our statutory responsibilities in the area of health, safety and welfare and requires the active support of all employees in achieving these minimum standards.

It is the duty of all employees, visitors and contractors to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of others who may be affected by their acts and omissions. This extends to a duty to co-operate with the Company so as to enable statutory duties or requirements placed on the Company to be performed or complied with.

All hazardous conditions that are identified will be awarded a high priority for rectification as far as is reasonably practicable.

The objectives of the Company Policy are:

  1. To set standards of health, safety and welfare which comply fully with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 1989 and all other relevant statutory provisions and approved codes of practice.
  2. To develop safety awareness among all employees and responsibility for health, safety and welfare at all levels.
  3. To encourage full and effective consultation on health, safety and welfare matters.
  4. To provide all employees with sufficient information, instruction, training and supervision to work safely and efficiently.
  5. To maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all employees.

To ensure the effective implementation and subsequent monitoring of the Health and Safety Policy throughout the Company, it is necessary to define the duties and accountabilities of all persons. These are set out in Section 2 of the Health and Safety Statement document.

Regular reviewing of this Policy is the responsibility of the Managing Director and forms part of the ongoing monitoring activity of Health and Safety.
