PGMC upholds the principles of a positive safety culture

Health and safety are integral parts of PGMC’s personnel policies. The Company comprehensive safety program is designed to minimize health risks arising out of work activities and to assure compliance with occupational health and safety standards and rules and regulations that apply to our operations.

Managers and supervisors regularly conduct safety briefings and new employees undergo safety orientation. First aid and emergency equipment are installed strategically in all work areas and PGMC’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) stands ready 24/7.

In fact, PGMC’s ERT can always be counted upon to assist in emergencies outside the confines of the mine site. During the recent earthquake in North Cotabato, PGMC’s ERT was one of the first responders and assisted in rescue operations and the packing and distribution of relief goods and drinking water. 

As testament to their professionalism,  the team won 1st  Runner-up honors in the Fire Brigade Competition during the Safety Field Competition in connection with the 66TH Annual National Mine Safety and Environment Conference in Baguio City.
