Iluka’s health, safety and wellbeing programs include:
- Critical Control Management (CCM) engages employees in the identification, elimination, control and mitigation of fatality risk. CCM provides confidence that health and safety material risks are being effectively managed, through a combination of program assurance, good governance and improved frontline knowledge of critical risks and controls. Frontline workers play a key role in recognising critical risks associated with their tasks and ensuring controls are in place before commencing Field supervisors verify and validate these control measures.
- Safe Production Leadership stands as a cornerstone for our frontline leaders, empowering them with essential skills and in-depth knowledge of Iluka systems and requirements through a blend of classroom-based education and competency assessments.
- Switched On advocates a mindset that safety is protecting people for a reason. Instrumental in helping Iluka achieve a material shift in safety performance, the program standardised many of Iluka’s health and safety risk management tools.
- Musculoskeletal Injury Management provides on-site physiotherapy for early intervention and support in treating minor sprains and strains. Emphasising employee wellbeing, the program integrates physical fitness sessions, health education, and strategies to enhance overall health.
- Safety visits are a positive leadership tool focused on behaviours and risk for specific tasks. It aims to increase visibility of frontline leaders through thematic discussions between the Iluka Leadership Team and those undertaking the task, generating opportunities to engage with all levels of the workforce to identify safety improvements.
- Our Occupational Hygiene program drives the assessment and review of workplace exposures that could affect employee health. In line with Iluka standards, procedures and guidelines, monitoring programs are based on qualitative and quantitative risk assessments. These programs, aligned with the operational risk profile, concentrate on measuring exposure to agents such as dusts, mists, gases and vapours, noise, radiation, heat stress, and waterborne microbes.
Iluka prioritises the mental health and physical wellbeing of employees through initiatives such as a dedicated wellbeing portal on the Iluka intranet for resources, tools and techniques to enhance wellbeing, and the provision of mental health first aid training for employees and supervisors. An Employee Assistance Program is available as a confidential support service that can help employees and their immediate families address a wide range of work and life challenges.
Iluka’s Mental Health Awareness eLearning module is mandatory for all employees. Lifeline WA’s mental health first aid training is also in place for appointed employees throughout the business.
