Companies often rely on local government support for provision of basic health services to communities around the project areas. However, large scale operations create additional health risks for communities and local staff due to environmental and social impacts. In some cases, projects in remote areas attract significant in-migration causing strain on local infrastructure and services. These impacts if not addressed well, cause negative sentiments around business operations increasing local level risk and feed negatively into company’s bottom line.  Responsible companies adopt community investment in improving or supplementing local health services and take proactive measures such as providing good quality basic health management information. In this section, you will find guidelines and information that can help companies implement basic level of health risk assessment and management around company operations.
