At IGO, we care about the safety of our people and our host communities. We proactively prevent harm by providing a safe place of work and safe systems of work. But this is not enough. Safe work is, more than anything else, the product of culture.
At IGO, we actively seek to create the culture to which we aspire; a culture in which each of us assumes responsibility for their own safety and, in so far as is reasonable, that of their workmates.

Intellectual honesty when it comes to Safety
We all take risks. Business is based on taking informed risks. At IGO, it is our intention that we, as a business, and as individuals, only take risks in an informed way. At IGO we will not accept any risk where there is an elevated potential for serious harm or fatality. However, we cannot offer a completely hazard free work environment; no organisation can. We maintain an expectation of continuous improvement in hazard management and expect to be held accountable for our performance. Consequently, we can, and always will, pursue efforts to make our workplace safer and promote a culture in which the welfare of our people is a central value.

At IGO we measure our safety performance using a variety of metrics that speak to the nature and frequency of injuries. We also monitor our workforce’s perceptions about our safety performance and the degree to which we have created a culture that demonstrates care.
