RUC Mining has received the following accreditations.


Safety forms the foundation of our company ethos and through our safety, training policies and procedures RUC Mining makes every endeavour to ensure that our employees operate in a safe and productive environment.

We operate under the philosophy that “if it can’t be done safely, it won’t be done at all”. We strive to ensure an injury free work environment for our employees, contractors, visitors and stakeholders.

We take pride in our safety record, which sits amongst the best in the industry and consistently exceeds that of our competitors.

Through an active “top down” and “bottom up” approach we ensure that health and safety is paramount in all our decisions. RUC Mining has an Occupational Health, Safety and Training (OHS&T) Management Plan which has been developed to unsure a uniform and effective standard for safety management is applied across our organisation.

This OHS&T Management System has been aligned with Australian Standards AS/NZS 4804 and AS/NZS 4801, as well as OHSAS 18001.

The OHS&T Management Plan has five main elements:

  • Policy and Commitment
  • Planning
  • Implementation
  • Measurement and Evaluation
  • Management Review

Each element is then supported by procedures, guidelines, checklists and forms that give clear direction to the user in how to best manage the particular item.

The Occupational Health, Safety and Training (OHS&T) Management Plan is further supported by the HIRA Document and the Site Activity Compliance Implementation Schedule which sets measurement targets of the system requirements and identifies persons responsible to ensure those targets are obtained. This process is a key deliverable of the OHS&T Management Plan.

It is from the Site Activity Compliance Implementation Schedule that RUC Mining staff will be able to audit themselves to ensure all aspects of the safety management plan are being achieved and review the overall performance of the operation with regard to OHS&T compliance.

The OHS&T Management Plan and the Site Activity Compliance Implementation Schedule are ‘living documents’ and as such are subject to change, if required, to ensure targets are still relevant.

The process of continual improvement is based on meeting OHS standards by implementing procedures, training, inspections and audits to identify and correcting non conformances.

Through the commitment and the efforts of our employees, RUC Mining has shown a consistent improvement in our safety performance over the last nine years:


We believe that safety is a managed outcome which is accomplished through following a risk based approach to predict and prevent future events that could lead to a loss. We are confident in our Safety Management Systems that we have developed to manage our risks
