WHS Undertaking - Incident Animation
In December 2016, a contract haulage truck driver passed away following an incident at Bloomfield’s Rix’s Creek Mine. As part of an Enforceable Undertaking, Bloomfield has developed an animation highlighting the safety lessons learnt from the incident.
In December 2016, a contract haulage truck driver passed away following an incident at Bloomfield’s Rix’s Creek Mine. This passing - and traumatic workplace incidents like it - have far-reaching impacts. This is particularly true when it comes to mental health.
The Bloomfield Group has developed The Mental Safety Toolkit - ‘Protecting Your Mental Health: The Before, During and After Program’. It is an initiative of the WHS Undertaking approved by the NSW Resources Regulator.
The Mental Safety Toolkit was developed to help businesses be better prepared to manage mental health effectively in their workplace. With a specific focus on providing support during and after a serious incident, it puts resources directly into the hands of business via a free App. You can download the Mental Safety App via the App Store.
