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
programs to conserve resources, minimise waste and improve processes to protect
of indigenous cultural heritage
of protected fauna and flora species
all employees and contractors of the company's policy and of their own responsibilities
in respect to that policy
SHERMP is designed to meet, as a minimum, the requirements of legislation affecting
our various operations in the environment. This legislation includes:
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.
