Health, safety and environment

The Group is committed to creating a safe and healthy working environment for its employees and the health and safety of our employees is of the utmost importance.

HSE performance in 2023:

  • One case of Occupational Diseases was recorded.
  • One claim for the Compensation for Occupational Diseases was submitted.
  • No machines operating at Black Wattle exceeded the regulatory noise level.
  • The Group’s South African operations recorded 2 Lost time Injuries during 2023.

In addition to the required personnel appointments and assignment of direct health and safety responsibilities on the mine, a system of Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments has been designed, implemented and maintained at Black Wattle and at Sisonke Coal Processing.

Health and Safety training is conducted on an ongoing basis. We are pleased to report all relevant employees to date have received training in hazard identification and risk assessment in their work areas.

A medical surveillance system is also in place which provides management with information used in determining measures to eliminate, control and minimise employee health risks and hazards and all Occupational Health hazards are monitored on an ongoing basis.
