Peace River Coal

At Peace River Coal Safety is Paramount

At Peace River Coal we share our shareholders' vision of zero harm for its workforce. We recognize that our strength as a company resides in the men and women who contribute to our business.

Peace River Coal's zero harm policy assures all employees and contractors of a secure, controlled workplace.


Zero Harm

Based on three simple tenets, zero harm is the policy that underlies everything we do:

  • Zero Mindset - We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable
  • Standards - We must all follow the same, non-negotiable rules
  • No Repeats - If an incident does occur, it's our responsibility to identify how it can be prevented in the future.

Health and Safety is the responsibility of every member of the workforce. Peace River Coal is committed to our goal of eliminating work-related injuries and occupational illnesses to achieve our ultimate goal of zero harm. It is intended that every member of our workforce returns home fit and well at the end of each shift. We believe that one injury or occupational illness is one too many.

In meeting these commitments we will develop, implement and maintain a health and safety management system that meets internationally recognized standards and enables us to:

  • Identify, access and manage risks
  • Ensure accountability for those responsible for each part of our business
  • Set clear objectives and targets and develop plans to achieve continual improvement in our performance, then monitor our progress
  • Provide the resources, tools and training necessary for achievement of our objectives
  • Ensure that all of our operations have fundamentally safe, well designed plant, equipment and infrastructure
  • Communicate openly with our employees, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders
  • Report openly on our performance and develop plans for continual improvement

Compliance with legislative and other requirements placed upon us, including those to which we voluntarily subscribe, is fundamental to the way we do business.
