Health and Wellness
HEALTH AND WELLBEING
At IGO, we work proactively, not just to sustain the wellbeing of our people and host communities, but to improve their wellbeing. We actively facilitate wellness initiatives and provide resources designed to support our workers. Similarly, we support a range of programs in our host communities. For further detail, refer to IGO’s Sustainability Report.
One aspect of Health and Wellness is occupational health and hygiene. Our intention is to manage our workplace environments in ways which effectively minimise the exposure of our people to hazards which may cause long-term or chronic health impacts. Some hazards are readily controlled while some are intrinsically difficult to manage.
Specifically, IGO is committed to:
- determining what our people are potentially and actually exposed to, and assess the risk that these exposures create
- determining how best to protect our people from these exposures
- confirming whether the controls have been implemented and are effective, and if they are not, take remedial action; and
- documenting the above activities in a Health Management Plan (HMP), executing the plan, reviewing the results achieved, and updating the plan accordingly.
Another important aspect of Health and Wellness is our health and wellbeing strategy, I-GO Well, which is focused on providing our people across all locations the flexibility to engage with skilled health professionals for support with injury and illness prevention and management and their personal health and wellbeing.
