Health and Safety

Health and safety excellence is one of our core principles. We seek to prevent, minimize and manage occupational health and safety risks for our employees, contractors and the communities where we operate.

Lithium Americas is committed to health and safety excellence and our goal of zero harm through the implementation of industry best practices, risk prevention and regulatory compliance.

We are proud to partner with SafeStart, the most successful advanced safety awareness and skills development program in the world. It has been proven to reduce injuries as much as 70% in a short time frame in over 3000 companies in 60+ countries. The program aims to help people avoid unintentional mistakes that lead to injury, helping them understand when they are most likely to make an injury causing error and what to do to prevent the error in the first place. By providing human error prevention training, SafeStart improves overall workplace safety behaviors, reduces injury, and instills a strong and consistent safety culture.
