THE ENVIRONMENT & CULTURAL HERITAGE

BJ Young Earthmoving (BJY) recognises the value of the unique natural and cultural environments of the Pilbara, Kimberley and Gascoyne regions, and the potential environmental impact of its operations. This recognition is underpinned by Brad Young's love for and knowledge of this land and his desire to see it develop sustainably.

BJY demonstrates this commitment in its involvement in numerous rehabilitation projects for its clients. These have been completed on time, to the highest standards and meeting all the requirements of the Department of Industry and Resources.

BJY's environmental policy meets Brad's high standards for environmental care. Accordingly, our Safety, Health, Environmental and Rehabilitation Management Plan (SHERMP) recognises Risk Assessment and the structured implementation of a Risk Control Program as crucial to providing sound environmental practices. Our SHERMP specifically focuses on:

  • Management systems to identify, assess, control and monitor environmental risks arising from our operation

  • Established programs to conserve resources, minimise waste and improve processes to protect the environment

  • Awareness of indigenous cultural heritage

  • Awareness of protected fauna and flora species

  • Informing all employees and contractors of the company's policy and of their own responsibilities in respect to that policy

Our SHERMP is designed to meet, as a minimum, the requirements of legislation affecting our various operations in the environment. This legislation includes:

  • Environment Protection Act 1986

  • Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972

Contracts undertaken by BJY, which have the potential to impact virgin land, such as the establishment of borrow or fill pits and material stockpiling, are designed using a life cycle approach to facilitate environmental rehabilitation at the end of their useful life.

BJY also takes into its design considerations the need to minimise interference with water courses in pits, assisting in reducing the scope of works at final rehabilitation. The result of these considered design approaches is a faster, more effective rehabilitation process.

BJY has demonstrated good environmental practices on a range of different projects, from designing borrow pits to larger civil and mining construction situations.
