The 1,500 jobs will be offered as six-month contracts and cover a range of skills needed by BHP operations in the short term. These jobs will support and bolster our existing workforce during this difficult time.

The jobs will be offered through existing labour hire partners and BHP contracts in each state.

BHP Acting Minerals Australia President Edgar Basto said supporting our people, communities and partners, safely, is the highest priority.?

“As part of BHP’s social distancing measures we are introducing more small teams with critical skills to work dynamically across different shifts,” he said.??

“The Government has said that resources industry is vital in Australia’s response to the global pandemic.? We are stepping up and providing jobs and contracts. Our suppliers, large and small, play a critical role in supporting our operations. It is a tough time for our communities and the economy. We must look out for each other as we manage through this together.”

BHP will reduce payment terms to seven days (from 30 days) for more than 1,100 small Australian businesses.

BHP CEO, Mike Henry said looking after the well-being and safety of its people, communities and partners is the highest priority.

“We are taking action to reduce the risk of transmission at our sites, in our offices and in our communities. Our local and small business partners play a critical role in supporting our operations and our people, and we know this is a very difficult time for them. We must look out for each other as we manage through this together,” Mr Henry said.

BHP has also created a $6 million fund to support its labour hire companies and their employees. The fund will be used for one-off payments for people quarantined after entering Australia and pay for labour hire employees not entitled to sick leave but affected by COVID-19.

?


Samarco, our joint venture in Brazil, is donating BRL 1 million in products and equipment for health professionals at the frontline of the fight against Covid-19 in cities near its sites in Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo states. Gloves, masks, protective glasses, sanitizer, infrared thermometers and rapid tests for Covid-19 are among the items that will be purchased directly by Samarco and delivered to city halls.


Keeping our people informed

For several weeks we have been updating our employees on the virus and the steps they should be taking to minimise the possibility of contracting and spreading the virus.

Some of that information is featured below:

Symptoms

The illness is still being studied. Common symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. Other less common symptoms of COVID-19 include muscle aches, headache, nausea and diarrhoea. In most people the symptoms are mild to moderate and recovery can be within a few days to a couple of weeks. In China, far fewer children (as a percentage) were detected with the disease and when they did, their symptoms were generally milder. It is capable of causing severe illness, and some infected people have died. It is possible that people with underlying health conditions are at higher risk for severe disease.

How does COVID-19 spread?

Authorities are continuing to investigate the source of the infection and how this new coronavirus spreads. Transmission is possibly happening via two routes:

  • Environment-to-human: preliminary information suggests that the novel coronavirus is zoonotic, or transmitted from an animal source to humans. The initial cluster of cases appeared to have a common source of exposure - a local live seafood and animal market.
  • Human-to-human: from a sick person to others who are in close contact. In general, coronaviruses spread through infected respiratory droplets, just like other respiratory infections, including colds and influenza. A sick person expels these droplets when they cough, sneeze, or talk. Others can get the disease via contact (direct or indirect) with these contaminated droplets.

Protection

We urge everyone to avoid potential exposure and practice good hygiene measures.

Keep some distance from people who are obviously sick. Maintain good personal hygiene including:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Carry hand sanitiser for use when soap and water are not readily available. Some authorities are advising hand sanitisers containing 60-85% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Please avoid shaking hands, kissing people and other personal contact.

The steps we’ve taken as a business

  • Set-up a Crisis Management Team, led by CEO Mike Henry.

  • Activated regional Emergency Management teams.

  • Provided regular updates that are specific to each of our assets and offices.

  • Published health and hygiene guidelines.

  • Provided additional resources such as hand sanitiser and cleaning equipment.

  • Implemented social distancing guidelines.

Business continuity

We have specific Business Continuity Plans (BCP) in place for each of our sites, functional teams and offices. They contain important practical guidance and measures on how to protect your health and safety should COVID-19 cause a direct impact. They help us identify and prevent risks as they arise, and respond to and recover from them quickly.

The current severity of the pandemic varies geographically. As a global company with over 72,000, it is vital that we have teams monitoring different regions and making asset-specific decisions. We have set-up regional emergency management teams.
