Evolution is committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace and target an injury free work environment for all personnel.

Evolution is committed to high standards of safety leadership for employees, contractors and the communities in which we operate. Mining activities by their nature have the potential to impact the safety of people and all risks must be identified, evaluated and managed to mitigate all identified actual and potential adverse impacts so far as reasonably practical.
Our safety target is to achieve an injury and occupational disease-free workplace by ensuring hazards are identified and managed at the source, all safety incidents are thoroughly investigated, learnings shared, and corrective actions implemented.
The Safety Performance Standards support Evolution’s Sustainability Policy by prescribing the minimum requirements for managing the risks associated with specific activities or tasks that have the potential to adversely affect the safety of employees, business partners and communities affected by business operations.

Our overall safety performance improved in FY20. There was increased reporting and investigations to prevent recurrence and a focus on safety risk management including audits at all sites with no significant findings identified. These findings were also verified through external review and audit.
While TRIF reduced by 18% to 6.8 compared with 8.3 in
FY19, this fell short of our target reduction of 34%.
In July 2019 the Queensland mining industry commenced a state-wide Safety Reset with the 49,000 mine workers across the state stopping to reflect on tragic industry incidents over the last 12 months. We held safety resets at every mine and exploration site including those outside of Queensland to talk about safety and identify what we could do together to prevent injuries.

FY20 safety achievements

FY21 focus

In FY21, we will continue to drive improvements in health and safety performance which includes reduction in people being hurt and increased rigour in our risk management.
Targets have also been incorporated into the business strategy including improving TRIF, increased reporting transparency, closing material and critical actions on time, improving in-field leadership and site interactions and improved incident investigation transparency and learning.

We live by our
Safety Principles

  • Management takes accountability for safety performance
  • Everyone is empowered to stop “at risk” behaviour and control unsafe conditions
  • Everyone takes accountability for his/her own safety and for the safety of those around them
  • All injuries and incidents are preventable
  • No task is so important that it cannot be done safely
  • Working safely is a condition of employment

Emergency Response

We believe in always using our resources to support our communities through significant
incidents or threatening situations

Evolution continues to build mine rescue skills, capability and resources across the Group. We have five Emergency Response Teams (ERT) with a total of 132 members. Our teams have played an important role in supporting our operations and nearby communities.
Our Crisis Management Plan outlines the roles, responsibilities and processes our corporate crisis management team would follow in the event of a crisis. Each of our sites have Emergency ResponsePlans that outline the response to be initiated in the event of an onsite emergency.

Over the last 12 months, our ERT personnel were first responders to 14 offsite emergency incidents that occurred within our local communities. These incidents included motor vehicle accidents, fires, farm incidents and medical emergencies. Evolution also provided a team to assist with flood recovery in Townsville in February 2019.
A Memorandum of Understanding between Evolution and the New South Wales State Emergency Service (SES) is in place which has assisted with flood rescue operations in the Sydney CBD and storms and flash flooding in Cootamundra.
Our teams attended the Victorian Mine Rescue Competition and W.A. Chamber of Minerals and Energy Underground Mine Rescue competition, placing first in the breathing apparatus skills event. We held our fifth Group Mine Rescue Challenge at Cracow in Queensland.
