Health and Safety Yardstick
Occupational Safety – Fatalities and Injuries – Milestones
Industry Target: Zero
rate of fatalities and
injuries
In the Gold Sector: By 2013, achieve safety performance levels equivalent
to at least current international benchmarks for underground
metalliferous mines
In the Platinum, Coal and Other Sectors: By 2013, achieve constant and
continuous improvement equivalent to at least current international
benchmarks
Occupational Health – Milestones
Industry Target:
Elimination of
Silicosis
Industry target:
Elimination of Noise
Induced Hearing Loss
(NIHL)
By December 2008, 95% of all exposure measurement results will be below
the occupational exposure limit for respirable crystalline silica of
0.1mg/m3 (these results are individual readings and not average
results)
After December 2013, using present diagnostic techniques, no new cases
of silicosis will occur amongst previously unexposed individuals
(Previously unexposed individuals = individuals unexposed prior to
2008, i.e. equivalent to a new person entering the industry in 2008)
After December 2008, the hearing conservation programme implemented
by the industry must ensure that there is no deterioration in hearing
greater that 10% amongst occupationally exposed individuals
By December 2013, the total noise emitted by all equipment installed in any
workplace must not exceed a sound pressure level of 110dB(A) at any
location in that workplace (includes individual pieces of equipment)
Health and Safety Yardstick
Occupational Safety – Fatalities and Injuries – Milestones
Industry Target: Zero
rate of fatalities and
injuries
Benchmark less than 1 fatality per 33 million hours worked by 2013
Occupational Health – Milestones
Industry Target:
Elimination of
Silicosis
Industry target:
Elimination of Noise
Induced Hearing Loss
(NIHL)
No new cases of silicosis for new employees from 2008
Deterioration < 10%
Noise from any & all equipment < 110 dB(A)

Conclusions on OHS performance
• The performance in the sector
has improved but the challenge
to improve has increased.
• “More of the same is not going
to do the trick” - L. Zim”
2007
• “What is frustrating is the fact
that all these accidents are
'repeat' in nature and by now we
should have learned from
previous cases” Minister
Shabangu
The road to ZERO HARM
• Attaining ZERO HARM is a journey
• Long
• Windy
• Very bumpy
• SAMI has achieved major
successes but the challenge is
ever-constant.
Paradigm Shift Required
Mine Health and Safety Council
MHSC Mandate
•
•
•
•
•
Advise the Minister on all occupational health
and safety issues in the mining industry
relating to legislation, research and promotion
Review and develop legislation for
recommendation to the Minister
Promote health and safety in the mining
industry
Oversee research in relation to health and
safety in the mining industry
Liaise with other bodies concerned with health
and safety issues

MHSC Initiatives- OHS Summit
Health and Safety
Culture
Learning industry
• Implement culture
transformation
framework
• Establish Centre of
• Eliminate Silicosis
Excellence for research,
research implementation and • Eliminate NIHL
capacity-building focusing on:
• Eliminate falls of Ground
• Improve OHS capacity
• Improve tripartite
relations
Healthy and Safe
Workplaces
• Eliminate transport and
• Ensure implementation • Reduce illiteracy in the mining
machinery accidents
sector
of summit commitments
• Increase scarce skills that are • Improve lifestyle of mine
critical to OHS
workers
• Improve monitoring of
occupation diseases
• Integrate and simplify
compensation system

MHSC Initiatives- OHS Summit
Health and Safety
Culture
• Implement culture
transformation
framework
• Over the years, MHSC focus has been to
control workplace risks through technical
aspects or the design of systems and
controls.
MHSC undertook the project
Changing Minds,
Changing Mines
to develop a framework into making
a revolutionary change towards
attaining zero harm in the sector.
22
Developing the Framework
• Over 3000 respondents
• Range of
• Commodities,
• Mining methods
• Provinces
• Size of Mines
• Stakeholders
How important is OHS at your workplace?
Respondents commented against 3 statements
Q 26. Everyone works safely here
Q 28. The people I work with take OHS seriously
Q 14. OHS has priority even when busy
• 76% agreed
• 60% take OHS seriously
• 82% of respondents said
that OHS takes priority
even when busy
How important is OHS at your workplace?
In the previous slide
30% take shortcuts
• If 76% agreed that
everyone works safely
• 82% said that OHS takes
priority even when busy
• Why then do we have
this situation that 30% of
respondents said that
taking shortcuts is
common occurrence
• OHS gets sidestepped
46% OHS sidestepped
What are the issues at the workplace?
Respondents commented against 3 statements
Q 30. if someone hurt at work they are not blamed
Q 32. if you make a mistake you are not blamed
• 40% said they are
• 43% are blamed for
mistakes
What are the issues at the workplace?
On issues of respect against 2 questions
Q 16. People are treated with respect?
Q 45. Are you treated fairly?
• 31% or ± 1000
said no to being
treated fairly
• 25% had issues on
being treated with
respect
What are the issues at the workplace?
Summary of the issues
MHSC’s Culture Transformation
Vision
We, the Tripartite Stakeholders of the South African Mining Sector, see a
future in which
EVERY MINE EMPLOYEE SHALL RETURN HOME UNHARMED EVERY
DAY.
Mission
Through the individual and collective efforts, each member of the South
African Mining Sector, shall (led by the leaders and principals), adhere to
the values of care and dignity towards respect for each other; not blaming
but applying fair sanction through honesty, integrity and transparency,
ensuring trust; equity and equality to attain ZERO HARM.

Risk Management
We will ensure that ZERO HARM is
prioritised ahead of production
Leadership
Leaders will lead by example in walking
the ZERO HARM talk
Leading Practice
We will take a common approach to
identifying and facilitating the adoption of
leading OHS practices and research
outcomes
Elimination of
Discrimination
There will be no racism, genderism and
any forms of unfair discrimination
We will seek to eliminate risks at their
source and investigate root causes

Framework was
approved by the
principals on the 18th
of November 2011
MHSC Initiatives- HIV/AIDS & TB Summit
• At the Summit in November 2011, the principals agreed to work to
the three pillars on HIV/AIDS, TB and Silicosis in the mining sector
• PREVENTION
• TREATMENT, CARE AND
SUPPORT
• RESEARCH, MONITORING
& SURVEILLANCE
• In total there are 22 areas
focus.

MHSC Initiatives- Centre of Excellence
• The MHSC will fund the Centre of Excellence in line with an
approved Business Plan for the Centre.
• The MHSC will ensure that leadership of the Centre
implement a strategic plan in a coordinated and
comprehensive manner in line with the mandate of the
MHSC and purpose of the Centre.
• The MHSC will consider the Centre of Excellence as a
provider of choice for research and capacity building as the
Centre develops its own capacity to deliver.
41
MHSC Initiatives- Regional Tripartite Forums
• Poor track record on
dissemination
• Poor track record on
implementation
• Mining Charter forces employers to focus on
research
• How does the MHSC initiatives reach the target
audience?
• How do issues on the ground reach the MHSC?
42
MHSC Initiatives- Regional Tripartite Forums
• Regional Tripartite Forums provides ideal
opportunity
• MHSC supports the initiatives
• Involvement at various regions was first step
• Workshop on the 31st of January 2013 to
develop framework
• Recruitment of facilitators underway
MHSC Initiatives- Research Programmes
• Past OHS performance
• Previous research
.
• External developments that impact on OHS are
also
• Stakeholders provide detailed inputs for new
work
• A needs analysis report based on the findings
arising from above process
• The MHSC provides final approval of the
programme
