Data Criteria

Providing a safe and healthy workplace
Employee are PTBA’s main assets. Therefore, the company strives to establish a safe and comfort workplace for them. The company believes safe and comfort working environment will increase the motivation, loyalty and dedication of employee in carrying out their duties, which in turns will increase the company's performance.

To create a safe and pleasant work environment, the company set Occupational Safety and Health as its priority. For the company, the achievement of performance targets will be perfect if followed by maximum protection for all PTBA team. In this context, all PTBA team are committed to support and carry out occupational safety and health (K3) aspects in all activities, with the achievement of zero accidents as the end result.

To make sure the standard of occupational safety and health (K3) already been implemented and in order to express the commitment to safe mining activity, PTBA has integrated all operational system related to occupational safety and health management aspects into Bukit Asam Management System (BAMS) including the Implementation of Occupational Safety and Health Management System (SMK3) according to Republic of Indonesia Government Regulation No. 50 of 2012, ISO 45001: 2018 certification, and the implementation of Mining Safety Management System (SMKP) according to Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 26/2018.

In order to increase the effectiveness of SMK3 implementation, the company also oblige third party business partners/contractors to comply with K3 requirements stated in the Contractor Safety Management System (CSMS). The CSMS is aiming to improve the safety and health of the third party partners or contractors through the implementation of SMK3, including aspects related to human rights of the workers.

Occupational Safety and Health Implementing Organization
To increase the effectiveness of SMK3 implementation, PTBA has OHSE management and Safety committee (P2K3) / Mining Safety Committee (KKP) which members include representation from management, representation from workers from each work unit as well as the main contractors. The P2K3’s function, position and responsibilities are regulated in article 79 of the Collective Labor Agreement (PKB), which is the agreement between the company and employees.

The main duty of the Safety Committee is to give advice and consideration, whether requested or not, to business partner/ work unit manager regarding occupational safety and health matters. The company regularly held meeting with P2K3, both with related work units and with partners/contractors. In the meeting a number of topics were discussed, including reminding all parties to always carry out all provisions related to occupational safety and health (K3).

HSE Leading indicator
In order to achieve zero accident, the company has implemented HSE program in 2020 as follows:

Mining Safety Risk Management
The implementation of mining safety risk management refers to Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 26/2018 pertaining the Implementation of Good Mining Engineering Principles and Supervision of Minerals and Coal and Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Decree No. 1827/2018 pertaining Guidelines for Implementing Good Mining Engineering Principles.
PTBA already has risk management procedure integrated with the company management system. The risk management activities are carried out and become the responsibility of all units. The mining safety risk management process can be described as follows:

Risk consultation and communication
The process to generate and gather information from the related stakeholders both internal and external in each stages of risk management process. The information can be related to the existence, type, form, probability, severity, evaluation, treatment, or other risk aspects. This process is carried out continuously from the start and keeps repeating.

Risk context defining
Process of defining risk limitations to be managed and defining the scope of the next risk management process. The context includes internal factors, external factors, context in the risk management process and risk criteria definition.

The internal factors include all activities carried out by operational work unit, both regularly and unregularly, in normal and abnormal condition, non-compliance with internal rules/procedures, personnel competency, and the appropriateness of the facilities, infrastructures, installations as well as mining equipment.

The external factors include activities carried out by external parties, mining services contractors and company guests, infrastructure, equipment and materials provided by other party, legal obligations related to hazards identification, and identified hazards originating from outside the work location that could endanger the safety and health of the company's operations.

Risk management context, include the scope of appraisal methodology, evaluation method is regulated in the company internal procedure integrated in Bukit Asam Management System (SMBA).
The definition of risk criteria, according to PTBA internal procedure includes financial, human, environment, reputation and law. The consequence/severity matrix levels are: small, medium, large, and catastrophic. The probability/possibility matrix levels are: very small, rarely, occasionally, and often. Risk levels are: low, medium, high & extreme.

Hazard identification
Carried out in all activities, processes, product and work area to be assessed. The hazard can be identified by evaluating what factors could harm employees/causing accidents. Hazard identification is carried out by observing activities or interviewing employees related to the activity. Identification result then prepared by internal work unit team equivalent to manager level, checked by the first tier work unit leader and approved by General Manager Unit.

Risk assessment and control
The process of assessing the risk caused by hazard, is the product of the multiplication of the severity value and the possibility value according to the predefined matrix. The score of the assessment is as follows: very low, low, medium, high, extreme.

The risk control becomes the responsibility of all operational work unit risk owner, the risk control is according to the predefined hierarchy as follows:

  1. Elimination of hazard
    Eliminating hazard from an activity, effectively eliminating risk up to 100%. If the elimination cannot be carried out, then the next stage of control will be carried out.
  2. Substitution
    Controlling the risk by reducing hazard through the process modification (equipment, material and work method). With the hazard level lowered, substitution is effective to lower the risk up to 75%. If the substitution is not effective, then it can be added with the next stage of control.
  3. Reengineering
    Controlling risk by reengineering the equipment to reduce the danger level. This control is effective in reducing risk up to 50%. If engineering controls are not effective, then further control should be taken.
  4. Administration Control
    Controlling the risk by reengineering the equipment, so as to lower the hazard level. This stage of control is effective to lower the risk up to 50%. If reengineering is not effective, then it can be added with the next stage of control.
  5. Administrative Control
    Controlling the risk by administrative control, including compliance with regulations/procedure/standards, supervision/inspection checking/ observation, fulfillment of competencies. This stage of control is effective to lower the risk up to 30%. If administrative control is not effective, then it can be added with the next stage of control.
Monitoring and review
The occupational safety and health risk review is carried out once a year or when accident/hazardous event or occupational illness occurs, or if there are changes in equipment or activities and new activity processes. The results of the review are communicated to all related parties and it is ensured that risk control is carried out.
