Work Health & Safety Management

WFSP is a safety focused organization and adopts the governing mining safety statutory guidelines that apply to the industry providing a healthy and safe work environment. This commitment to protecting people and property also extends to ensuring that WFSP operations do not place others at risk of injury, illness or property damage.

WFSP has developed a key Safety Management Plan (SMP) that provides our management strategy for health and safety risk compliance to all plant and general maintenance operations for the crews. 

 

The WFSP SMP provides the objectives for compliance including:

Environment Commitment

The key to WFSP’s environmental management is understanding our surroundings and our clients requirements. Essentially our staff are also trained on site specific directions, for example our clients in Asia are involved with inland mining operations whist some of PNG established clients are island based with close proximity to the oceanic regions. WFSP is committed to regional acceptance training and understanding to all environmental issues and the country specific locations.  

 

  • Environmental management is a key KPI for contracted staff and management. 
     

  • As part of the management review 2020/2025 the directors are committed in conjunction with our sponsored companies to net zero emission by 2050.
     

  • Our commitment to environmental management is a close second only to the safety management of our staff.
