Our goal of zero harm includes protecting and promoting the health and wellbeing of our people and minimizing illnesses in the workplace. Mining exposes workers to dust, chemicals, noise and fumes. Our standards and occupational hygiene processes are designed to effectively identify and manage these risks.
Lubambe Mine employees work in a variety of conditions, and illnesses like malaria, HIV and tuberculosis are prevalent. Our programs focus on education, prevention, behaviour modification, effective treatment, monitoring and evaluation. A healthy workforce is a more engaged one. Through a number of workplace wellness programs, we aim to encourage healthy lifestyles through education about nutrition and exercise and by providing incentives for workers to conduct wellness checks.
