Health and Safety

Wesizwe's Health and Safety Policy supports the principle of zero harm to all stakeholders, including employees and host communities, and the health and safety of everyone involved in the Bakubung Platinum Mine project is of the utmost importance. The site has, to date, achieved an enviable safety record, whilst environmental impacts have been kept to an absolute minimum. 

Safety is our primary risk and one that impacts all stakeholders. To minimise injuries and maximise safety requires the commitment of all employees. Wesizwe has a zero tolerance for contraventions of safety guidelines, policies and procedures, with stringent disciplinary procedures for breaches of safety rules.  The project is at a development stage in which low energy injuries and at-risk behaviour comprised the majority of injuries in 2013.  469,590 fatality free shifts have been recorded since the commencement of the project.
