Boggabri’s Healthy Lifestyle Program
Boggabri’s Healthy Lifestyle Program
October 29, 2015
Back in 2009, Downer Mining’s Boggabri open cut coal mine kicked off a progressive health management program to promote the importance of a healthy lifestyle to its workforce. The mine recognised that poor health is a safety risk amongst the miners as long hours, shift work and poor diet can have negative impacts both in and out of the workplace.


There’s more to mining than just mining. You’d be surprised at some of the things our miners are doing. Things that we’re incredibly proud of. Like helping build stronger communities, innovative technology, world-leading safety and new practices to reduce our impact on the environment.
Everyone knows we create jobs and generate money for the NSW economy – 93,000 people directly employed, over 325,000 indirectly plus $1.2 billion a year in royalties to the NSW Government that helps pay for nurses, teachers and police. But we won’t rest, because it’s not enough to be only good for the economy. We want to be good for NSW.
