National Day of Health and Safety 2022

Today marked the Minerals Council South Africa’s fifth annual commemoration of the National Day of Health and Safety in Mining. Since its inception in 2018, the goal has been to demonstrate efforts made by the industry in addressing health and safety-related issues, to reinforce its commitment, and to learn from one another to reach the common goal of Zero Harm.

The 2022 theme, Stepping up to the Challenge, aims to recognise excellence in health and safety in the industry and demonstrate the mining industry’s commitment to achieving zero harm.
