We have developed codes and policies to help employees understand what is expected of them. These include the OZ Minerals Code of Conduct, Whistleblower Policy, Securities Trading Policy, Continuous Disclosure Policy, Shareholder Communication Policy and Risk Management Policy. These are made available to the OZ Minerals workforce via the intranet and are also available on the OZ Minerals website.
The Code of Conduct describes standards for appropriate ethical and professional behaviour for all directors, employees and contractors working for OZ Minerals. The code provides policy on conflicts of interest, bribery and corruption, privacy and anticompetitive behaviour. Breaches of the Code are taken seriously by OZ Minerals and may be reported with the support of the Whistleblower Policy.
OZ Minerals is committed to ensuring concerns regarding illegal conduct or malpractice can be raised in good faith without being subject to victimisation harassment or discriminatory treatment, and to have the concerns properly investigated. The Whistleblower Policy provides a mechanism by which all employees can confidentially report improper or illegal conduct without fear or discrimination.
To safeguard against insider trading, OZ Minerals’ Securities Trading Policy prohibits directors and employees from trading the Company’s securities if they are aware of any information that would be expected to have a material effect on the price of Company securities. The policy also establishes ‘black out periods’, during which directors and employees must not trade OZ Minerals securities.
The Continuous Disclosure Policy outlines OZ Minerals’ procedure to comply with its continuous disclosure obligations under the listing rules of the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and the Corporations Act.
Shareholder communications are at all times governed by OZ Minerals’ obligations under the Corporations Act and, in particular, the continuous disclosure provisions and ASX Listing Rules. This policy outlines OZ Minerals’ commitment to provide timely, accurate and compliant information to shareholders about OZ Minerals to enable them to exercise their rights as shareholders in an informed manner. The purpose of this policy is to promote effective communication with shareholders by providing them with access to the latest information about OZ Minerals and to make it easier to participate in general meetings.
OZ Minerals is committed to effective risk management, which is central to our continued growth and success. Our aim is for risk management to become embedded into all our business systems, mining operations and exploration activities.
