National Day of Health and Safety 2020

The Minerals Council South Africa today launched the National Day of Health & Safety in Mining 2020. This is the third annual day that is being commemorated.

They are intended to demonstrate and support the mining industry’s recommitment to the shared imperative of Zero Harm, under the Khumbul’ekhaya strategy. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the lives of so many individuals around the world – therefore, in 2020, this day is focused on reinforcing behaviour change at home and at work in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minerals Council separately announced today the publication of a Behaviour Change Field Guide to re-enforce behaviours that support healthy and safe ways of working and community living in the context of COVID-19.
