As we do across our global operations, we are working to improve the health of our employees in Canada.
We focus on the health of our people so we can support their long-term well-being, and because we also understand that a fit, healthy workforce is one that will support our ambition to become a health and safety leader in our industry and to create a workplace without fatalities, injuries or occupational diseases.
At CCR Refinery, health assessment and monitoring in the workplace includes pre-employment check-ups to establish a baseline and assess the fitness of employees based on their professional duties; regular medical examinations, based on the employee’s level of risk exposure; and the communication of the results of the health checks and the medical examinations of the employees.

Nickel Rim South, part of our Sudbury INO, recently launched their Health Coach Program, which focuses on physical fitness, mental health, sleep and fatigue. The team has identified various key performance indicators (KPIs) to attain by year’s end to evaluate whether their health and safety culture is driving results.
