HEALTH & SAFETY
Because we believe our employees are our most valuable resource, we seek continuous improvement in occupational health and safety performance, taking into account evolving community expectations, management practices, scientific knowledge and technology.
We actively comply with all applicable laws, regulations and standards. For areas not covered by existing regulations, we exercise our own high professional standards, with employee wellbeing as our first priority.
From involving employees and contractors in performance improvements, to ensuring personal accountability in everyday operations, to implementing management systems that identify, assess, monitor and control hazards, we proactively ensure that American Gilsonite provides a safe and productive place to work.
As a mining and processing company, we realize the importance of achieving a high standard of environmental care in our operations.
Respect for the government, the environment and the community is at the core of our way of doing business. That includes not only complying with all applicable regulations and standards, but adhering to the spirit of the law as well. It means we apply standards that minimize adverse environmental impacts. And it includes open communication and collaboration with the government and the community in regards to environmental issues.
By educating our employees, suppliers and customers about our environmental policies and procedures and using systems to identify, control and monitor environmental risks, we can maintain a responsible environmental footprint while performing efficiently and profitably from a business perspective.
Conserving resources, minimizing waste and improving processes will allow us to increasingly operate in an environmentally responsible manner well into the future.
