Safety Mate recognises the magnitude of the issues of mental health in the mining industry, so we’re reaching beyond our customers’ physical safety to support their mental safety too.

  • Mental illness affects 50% of all Australians over the course of their life
  • 60% of Australians do not seek treatment
  • 75% of mental health issues develop before the age of 25
  • Suicide is the leading cause of death for 15-44 year olds.
  • On average, over 1,200 Australians attempt to take their lives every week and 58 Australians die by suicide every week

Riley Black Dog Stream EVO features

  • Maximum comfort and protection
  • Tecton 400™  Anti-scratch and Anti-fog
