Setting Up HSEC
Health, safety, environmental protection and community organization
On 18 March 2013, the Company established HSEC, which is currently comprised of three members, i.e. Mr. Yang Jiye, Dr. Qiu Yumin and Dr. Wang Anjian, all having rich experience in mining industry. The HSEC held its first meeting on 28 November 2013 to review the Company’s governance policies on health, safety, environmental protection and community and provide recommendations for improvement. By the establishment of the HSEC, the Group built a sound hierarchy of health, safety, environmental protection and community working organizations at all levels from the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) to the production workshops at each mine. The HSEC under the Board is responsible for leading the works regarding health, safety, environmental protection and community across the Group, including establishing dedicated management organizations under the operation headquarters of each business division to manage issues regarding health, safety, environmental protection and community within each business division, and establishing relevant enforcement organizations and appointing designated staff for each mine and their respective production workshops to enforce and supervise the implementation of relevant policies, so as to form an organization featured with definite responsibilities and effective supervision.
