We require all personnel onsite undergo an extensive project safety and environmental induction program. We will not permit anyone to work on our property without graduating from the safety and that environmental induction program and verifying that employment requirements of the BMSC Human Resources Plan have been met. We also require periodic re-inductions at site to enhance safety and environmental performance and reconfirm that all personnel on site continue to meet the standards that we have established.
Our employee training program includes, induction (including human rights aspects of harassment and discrimination), health and safety, leadership, process, mining and engineering, food safety and catering, and systems and software technical service. Cultural awareness training is also provided to all employees and is conducted in an inclusive format between expatriates and the local workforce. In addition, some departments sponsor a monthly team-building event which includes activities to increase knowledge of their fellow workers and enhance cooperation and teamwork amongst the diverse workforce.
We also provide orientation on the Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights to the BMSC Heads of Departments as well as to our local security provider, Binae. To date, this has included formal presentations and questions and answers with an international human rights lawyer. The Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights will be incorporated into induction training for all workers in mid 2015.
