OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY
This Health and Safety Policy is communicated to all stakeholders, as far as is reasonably practicable, in the languages of English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. This Policy serves as the center of reference for our organization within the greater context of the environment within which we work. We are committed to continually improving on the means with which we intend achieving these desired ends, as defined in this policy and through the following aspects.
Every person has a basic human right to health and safety.
People are our most valuable and important resource.
Health and safety shall be granted status equal to that afforded to cost, productivity, quality and time.
Every person shall be afforded equal respect and consideration and shall be encouraged to contribute towards making decisions, in order to realize synergy and exercise the principles and practices that are conscious and mindful of all concerned.
Every person shall be acknowledged and supported in realizing their true and full potential, in all aspects of both their professional and personal lives.
The ultimate purpose of this Health and Safety Policy is to ensure the sustainability of our organization as well as that of our earth.
To ensure the prevention of occupational fatalities, injuries and diseases.

It is important to remember that even though research or experience might indicate that an increase in health and safety performance is directly proportional to a decrease in incidents and accidents – this is not guaranteed.
