Health & Safety
We put people first and our number one priority is the safety of every employee. At Virgin Gold, we believe the health and safety of our work force is more critical to sustaining our business than the amount of ore we mine.By demonstrating our commitment to protecting the welfare of others, we can attract and retain experienced employees, encourage host communities to do business with us, and secure financial investments to explore and develop new regions.
We also believe that to achieve our production and financial goals, we must make health and safety a stated value and key priority in everything we do. Our primary objective is to create a culture where people trust it is possible to work free of illness or injury — regardless of where a mine is located in the world or the role each worker performs.
Safety is a core value to Virgin Gold because while our business priorities may change, our values do not. We firmly believe all occupational illnesses, accidents and injuries are preventable.
We have learned that safety is about passion for protecting and caring for our people, and about providing development opportunities through efficient and secure operations. We also recognize that to be considered an industry leader, we must continually improve health and safety systems regardless of our production level.
