Our team's safety is our priority

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our employees is a major priority for Baralaba and our service providers. Our employees are our greatest asset and strive to promote a work culture that reflects our commitment to health, safety, and wellbeing.

We seek to minimise the potential for workplace injuries as much as possible. Baralaba and our service providers continue to review operations and processes in an effort to provide a work environment that is both safe and healthy. With an ever-changing workforce and a dynamic work environment, it is vital we continue to investigate ways to improve identification, management, and monitoring of health and safety risks.

As the major employer of

Baralaba’s workforce, Golding takes responsibility for the induction of all new employees on site.

Golding have, over many years of supplying workforces to resource companies, developed very strong induction processes, highlighting the joint expectations of both themselves, and Baralaba in regard to health and safety on site.

Likewise, Golding’s health and safety management system is well tested across many sites and has been adapted to suit the unique operating conditions at Baralaba.


Water is a valuable, shared resource in our community and as such our philosophy is to use as little water as practical. The Baralaba North Mine is located on the northern floodplain of the lower Dawson River. An anabranch of the Dawson River separates Baralaba North from Baralaba Central. The mine has a substantial water allocation from the Dawson River however, due to our significant capture process for mine runoff, we rarely take water from the river.

Working with our community

Mining operations have played an integral part in the development of Baralaba, starting with the underground operations at the turn of the last century.

More recently, Baralaba’s community engagement has been significantly improved.

Baralaba Coal is working diligently to restore and foster relationships with the local community.
