Healthy people for healthy business
Our Industrial Hygiene Programme is aimed at eliminating occupational illness and creating workplaces that promote well-being. We monitor the environment for exposure to various stressors/parameters and apply the results to the training of employees, as well as contractors, on available control measures to minimise their exposure to potentially harmful substances. Each of our entities has an Exposure Assessment Plan, which also includes the correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Safety and Hygiene Committee
In the DRC, a formal Safety and Hygiene Committee is served by trade union representatives, and an integrated Isometrix software programme is being implemented to enhance audit standards across our African region. This includes an HSE module to help centralise and standardise audit standards, processes and outcomes, while improving central oversight and the generation of value-adding safety data analytics.
