Dedicated to health & safety in Bulgaria

With over 960 employees in Bulgaria, Dundee Precious Metals is fully committed to ensuring the health and safety of each and every one. All our site locations have a dedicated health and safety manager to develop, monitor and improve best practices and outcomes.

Construction of the first Bulgarian mining project in 40 years has been an exciting event for our employees and the local community. It is with recognition to the joint efforts of everyone that during construction and continuing into operation we succeeded to achieve over 2 mln LTI-free hours. At DPM Bulgaria we measure our success by the motivation of our employees to come to work each day, work safely, and achieve results with optimized costs. The construction and mine opening has stimulated the local economy and attracted people Our local leadership team action our social policy by investing in the community in keeping with our Memorandum of Understanding with the local authorities in 2015.

We are committed to the health and safety of our 250 employees engaged in production and auxiliary activities at Ada Tepe. Our dedicated health and safety team develops programs, monitors results and aims to continuously improve our actions by applying best practices.

Safety is not simply defined in policies and procedures, it is considered a daily focus, both at work and hopefully at home. We focus our attention on comprehensive personnel training, improvement of work conditions, occupational health and safety and the environment.

Employees are encouraged to think about safety in innovative ways. An example of this is the health and safety initiative ‘Because I Care’ where employees took part in a film, talked about the role of safety on site, and how important this was for their families too. Inviting the workers to take a leading role in talking about safety was very impactful both internally and externally. The process, the film premiere and the awards distributed to the participants increased awareness of safety in a fun and creative way. Introducing golden rules also plays a significant role in enhancing the safety culture.

Health and safety is also the focus of our communication and activities in the community. A range of events organized with schools, local administration and the general public raise awareness and critical skills and resources that could be shared in case of emergency.
