Tefo Molosiwa, Senior Manager of Sustainability said the mine had always believed in strict safety regulations whilst working under such potentially dangerous conditions.
“We promote a culture of safety throughout the mine and which in fact is encouraged even offsite. Through JPSL, we are not only striving to reduce and eliminate injury or ailment; it is bigger than that. In fact, teams are able to work their way up the league tables even through strong community involvement.”
