Global Preventative Measures

We have taken steps and implemented global preventative measures to ensure a safe working environment for our employees and contractors and prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are making sure that all appropriate measures are communicated to our people, and the necessary changes are implemented.

The following steps and processes have been implemented:

  • Task observations to ensure that workplace controls in place are effective in maintaining physical distance. Procedures will be modified where necessary to create distance. Tasks that cannot be effectively modified are discontinued until an appropriate change is implemented.
  • We are advising employees to stay at home if they are at risk or have family members at home at risk.
  • We have convened a global COVID Crisis Team, which meets daily to respond to this fast-evolving and unprecedented situation. The team is comprised of Eldorado’s Senior Leadership Team, Country Managers, General Managers, and Health & Safety and Communications teams.
  • We are following recommendations of the World Health Organization, local health authorities and advice of jurisdictional governments. We have taken precautionary steps to educate our employees about the symptoms and transmission of the virus with clear instructions on what to do if they feel unwell.
  • Pre-emptive measures are in place, such as conducting thermometric testing before accessing the site, encouraging increased hand-washing and social-distancing and limiting all non-essential travel.
  • Isolation contingencies put in place, should an employee or contractor test positive for COVID-19.
  • We are limiting access to our offices and sites to essential people only to reduce unnecessary exposure.
  • We are working with local communities to distribute hygiene supplies and educate them on preventative measures to reduce the spread of the virus.
  • We are liaising closely with governments, regulators and other external stakeholders to aid business continuity during this ever-changing situation.
  • Ensuring that each of our sites has in place:
    • Systems to monitor the numbers of employees that report to work and contingency plans to best sustain operations if the number of operational employees reporting to work declines.
    • Supply chain continuity plans and associated contingency plans. Inventories of key suppliers, trade routes, and delivery times have been reviewed and remain unaffected at this time.
    • A contingency plan to protect people, the environment and our assets should our operational capacity become impacted by workforce conditions or regulatory environment.
    • Site-specific emergency response plans and crisis management plans.
