Finstone's satisfactory health and safety record compares favourably with
other major mining operations in South Africa and internationally, a factor which
has been consistently recognised by the Department of Minerals and Energy not only
in relation to dimensional stone quarrying, but to the mining industry as a whole.
It is a key corporate objective of Finstone to maintain the health and well-being
of all its employees. This objective is integrated into every aspect of the
business with focus on:
- Consistent improvement of safety results
- On-going risk assessment with relevant action plans
- Monitoring of major risks at operational site level
- Stringent health and safety conduct
Through the combination of detailed risk assessment, the introduction of comprehensive operating
procedures and a zero tolerance to non-conformance, Finstone’s staff have been able
to attain and then consistently improve on world class safety standards.
