Ep 3…Respect in the workplace with James Palmer
Our third edition of UNCOVERED – the all Coal podcast!
Thank you to the people who reached out in response to last month’s podcast where Keith Patten shared his sobering story of losing two sons to suicide. You can catch up here [link] if you missed it.
James Palmer, BMA’s Asset President, makes his first podcast appearance on UNCOVERED to discuss respect and harassment in the workplace.
This is a national conversation happening across all levels of government, business and in the community. And BHP has been addressing this issue for some time.
Please note that some of this discussion may be challenging for you to hear and support is available whether you’re a BHP employee or a community member.
Listen to the conversation with James above or read the transcript.
UNCOVERED - a new coal podcast Ep 2.....on MENTAL HEALTH with Keith Patten
Welcome to the second episode of Uncovered – the new Coal podcast.
This month we’re discussing mental health as BHP has been raising awareness of this important topic across its operations as part of ‘Mental Health Month’ in May. We speak to BHP employee, Keith Patten, who tragically lost two sons to suicide. Keith made a promise to himself that if he could save just one life both his sons’ deaths would not be in vain.
DISCLAIMER - Some of this discussion may be challenging to hear. Please know that there are a range of free support services available via Beyond Blue and Lifeline. Or if you’re a BHP listener, via your Employee Assistance Program.
