Work Health, Safety & Wellbeing
The Australian wide movement of the Blue Tree Project has left its mark at the Cowal and Mungari Operations. At each operation, a tree has been painted blue with support from local stakeholders to support the project.
The trees raise awareness around mental health and sparking difficult conversations. Increasing visibility that “It’s OK to have a blue day” encourages our people to reflect on the wellbeing and health of themselves and others, break down stigmas surrounding mental health, and foster community connections and engagement. These blue trees serve as a reminder that our people and their health are our most important assets and align with our sustainability approach of creating planned positive legacies. Already more than 500 trees have been painted across Australia to help raise awareness of mental health and suicide prevention.
