exxaroMining Weekly reports that Exxaro Resources on Tuesday marked its yearly Sustainability Summit with a three-year fatality-free milestone.  

This achievement was highlighted as particularly notable, considering the number of expansion projects completed by the company in the past year, and the considerable increase in manpower that these projects required.  While this milestone was celebrated and commended at the event, speakers emphasised that the company would not become complacent and would strive every day to reach its objective of zero harm.  Employees were led by the Exxaro executive committee in a Khetha Ukuphepha Zero Harm (Safety) Pledge.  The flagship summit serves as both an educational and celebratory event highlighting the performance of the business within the sustainability functional areas – safety, health, wellness and the environment.  Held under the theme “The Future Now”, the event brought together Exxaro employees and stakeholders from various business units to share insights and chart the way forward for Exxaro’s sustainability.  One focus area going forward will be mental wellbeing, with this impacting on personal safety, as well as work safety and productivity.
