Universal is committed to introducing and sustaining a healthy and safe working environment. We aim to instil a work culture that views safety and health as of paramount importance and train our employees to not only work responsibly but to look after their own and fellow employees' safety and health.

We aspire to Zero Harm to our people, our host communities and the environment as much as is operationally possible.

Central to our goal of zero harm is our commitment to develop, implement and maintain Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems that drive continual improvement.

Appropriate risk management systems exist for all production sites.

Employees are provided with appropriate and on-going training and protective gear to prevent injuries and health risks.
