Mental Health Initiative
Gold Road achieves gold in mental health initiative.
Each year, one in five Australians will experience a mental illness. Throughout our lifetime, mental health illness will therefore impact many of us either directly or indirectly.
In December 2017, the Company embarked on a journey to increase our mental health awareness and leadership capability. We initiated a programme of Mental Health First Aid training for all employees which saw an initial group of Gold Road staff being certified.
By the end of 2018, almost 100% of Gold Road leaders and 80% of our employees were trained in Mental Health First Aid. On the back of this training programme we can proudly report that Gold Road became the first organisation in the mining industry to achieve Gold Accreditation from Mental Health First Aid Australia.
The implementation of more family-friendly rosters and the incorporation of mindfulness into our work day, demonstrate further examples of our commitment to optimising the health and wellbeing of our people. The contribution and participation from our staff, emphasises our collective and unified efforts to create a healthier and safer workplace for all.

In 2018, the Company embraced and expanded the deployment of the Vital Behaviours Influencer Model across non-operational business functions to assist with delivering those functions’ strategic objectives. This included implementing the Vital Behaviours programme to the management support teams of Gold Road’s drilling contract partners and their operational personnel.
By the end of the year, the Vital Behaviours programme had become an integral part of the Gold Road organisation. Gold Road’s Vital Behaviours for Health and Safety are Speak Up, Follow Procedures, Support Safe Teamwork, and Seeking Hazards.
