OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY MANAGEMENT
At Fortuna, Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) is one of our core values and a pillar in our approach to sustainability.
We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our employees, contractors, and suppliers by maintaining safe and healthy work environments throughout our operations and projects.
We do not tolerate unsafe actions or conditions.
Our goal is to achieve zero fatalities and to continuously improve our Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) programs and performance. We are guided by our Health and Safety Policy.
In turn, our OHS Policy is aligned with the ISO 45001: 2018 standard. This international standard specifies requirements for our OHS management system and gives guidance for its use. It enables organizations like ours to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and illness, and proactively improving our OHS performance.
In 2019, Caylloma’s OHS management system was re-certified in ISO 45001: 2018. At San Jose, we have aligned our OHS management system with the same standard and hope to become certified in 2020. Once Lindero begins commercial production, the operation will seek certification in the ISO 45001:2018 standard too.
Also, in 2020, we will begin implementing cross-operation audits to ensure compliance with our management and operational standards.
