Mining entities engage on SHE issues
According to a media release, the meetings started with a Peer group’s meeting, where Safety, Health and Environmental issues among various Mining entities and other organisations that are subscribed to BCM were on the table. BCM members shared their SHE performance, learnings from incidents, different SHE strategies that they are embarking on to improve SHE performance in the mines and other entities.
Amongst other issues discussed was, “the decarbonisation of mines and integration of renewable energy to the grid.” Various speakers spoke on the opportunities and the impacts that can come with the integration. Furthermore, the BCM members had the opportunity to embark on familiarization tours to operations, which included underground and opencast mine, where MCM was greatly praised and applauded for the high safety standards observed.
To conclude this 3-day engagement, a high level management meeting was held where Safety, Health and Environmental issues that were not resolved at the SHE peer group meetings and SHE sub-committee meeting were presented for resolution by Management.
