Health and Safety

Safety by choice, not chance

Human health and safety is the primary consideration governing our activities at the Brucejack site and our corporate offices. Pretivm’s safety management initiatives emphasize effective safety leadership, accountability, and a proactive approach to risk recognition.

Safety awareness education is conducted at Brucejack on a daily basis to instill the competency in our workforce to identify, understand, and manage risk in the remote site operating environment. On-the-job training related to safety at Brucejack is continuously provided to Pretivm employees, including basic first aid, food safe, the workplace hazardous materials information system, mine rescue, avalanche training, and other relevant topics. The Brucejack Drug and Alcohol Policy forbids the consumption or possession of alcohol or illegal drugs at site, and supervisors are trained to identify drug and alcohol use on the job. Pretivm offers an Employee Assistance Program which provides additional health and wellness support on and off the Brucejack site.
