We will manage our environmental, health and safety hazards and risks in compliance with all legal and other requirements.

We will achieve this, where so far as is reasonably practicable:

- The Company will identify and comply with all EH&S legislative requirements and appropriate guidelines, in order to maintain a healthy and safe working environment.
- Risk assessments will be completed for all tasks and hazards which pose a significant risk due to our activities. Control measures identified will be appropriate for the hazard identified and will be communicated to the relevant employees.
- Environmental aspects and impacts will be assessed and appropriate controls maintained.

We will continuously improve our environmental, health and safety performance through setting objectives and targets and implementing improvement programs.
