At Adelaide Brighton Cement, we are aware of health concerns from our neighbouring residents in relation to emissions from the Birkenhead Plant.

The results of our independent monitoring and analysis program (EPA licence condition) of the stacks at Birkenhead Plant, show that all emissions are well below the Environmental Protection Air Quality Policy (1994) and relevant national guidelines.

Employee Health

We are committed to maintaining a safe, productive and healthy work environment for all employees. There has been no evidence of ABC employee's health being impacted as a result of working at the plant, despite thousands of people being employed at the site over many decades.

Employees undergo a range of regular annual health checks, including lung function testing, hearing tests, eyesight and skin checks, As part of the annual health monitoring regime, personnel also wear individual monitoring devices from time to time to check particulate exposure at the site.
