Agincourt resources is committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and accident-free work environment. Especially due to COVID-19, safe work plans for our workforce were implemented including personal hygiene, social distancing, testing and medical advice. Other Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) policies such as monthly held Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Forum, Active Safety Agreements (ASA), online monitoring incidents system, and regular audits and inspections were continued in parallel.
One of the core OHS developments in 2020 was the focus on safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Enhancing the Industrial Hygiene Program, developing a COVID-19 Program, as well as temporary work from home (WFH) policies ensured that a healthy workforce could be maintained. In 2020, exemplary results were achieved concerning safety at the Martabe Gold Mine.
Both total Lost Time Injury (LTI) and Loss of Working Time (LTIFR) were kept to zero. Furthermore, the performance indicator (KPIs) related to accident rates and safety management performance scored 96% in 2020. This shows the Company’s strong commitment to reduce safety risks and adapt to new challenges in an agile, conducive manner. These results would not be possible without the strong commitment of employees and contractors to create healthy and safe work environments.
