Environment & Safety

Orica Yarwun is committed to ensuring that all operations are conducted in accordance with Orica's Safety, Health, Environment and Security Policy, summarised in our safety and health, environment, and security (SHES) vision 'Safety is our priority. Always.'

In meeting this SHES vision we aim to manage environmental risks and minimise the impacts that our activities have on the community and the environment. 

Comprehensive monitoring is undertaken to ensure that the site operates in accordance with regulatory requirements. Key regulatory requirements are detailed in the site's licence and environment authority, administered by the Queensland Government Departments Workplace Health & Safety QLD & Department of Environment Science, and include continuous and periodic monitoring of water and air emissions. 

Improvement projects are regularly undertaken at the site to ensure that environmental performance meets or exceeds the standards expected by the community, regulatory bodies and Orica.
