The health and safety of our people continues to be our highest priority and we aim to ensure staff and contractors return home unharmed at the end of every day. We are focused on achieving our goal of zero harm by continuously improving the health and safety culture, processes and systems at all of our operations.

In FY2013 the company adopted a new safety leadership and behaviour model based on its corporate values, as part of its ongoing commitment toward zero harm. Since August 2012, Norton's LTIFR has reduced by 60%.

The Paddington Operations Mine Emergency Response Team participates in the annual Chamber of Minerals and Energy (CME) Mine Emergency Response Competitions (pictured below). Mine rescue competitions are a critical part of the training schedule of mine emergency services, allowing teams to benchmark against their peers and to test their preparedness to perform under pressure.

Norton took out 3rd place in the CME Underground Mine Emergency Response Competition held in November 2013, 3rd place in the CME Surface Mines Rescue Competition held in May 2013 and 1st place in the CME Underground Mine Emergency Response Competition held in November 2012.
