The most important thing to come out of our mines is our people. That’s why we’re constantly working to build on our world-leading health and safety record and striving for zero harm.
 
To keep our industry strong for many years to come, we need a steady stream of highly skilled workers. We’re investing in education to teach our young people about NSW mining, and providing information about employment and careers to those considering joining our workforce.
 
And while mining has traditionally been a male-dominated industry, we’re determined to encourage diversity – we’ve launched the NSW Women in Mining Network and we’re expanding opportunities for Indigenous Australians, too.
