On 31 August Barplats was proud to celebrate 500,000 fatality-free shifts as part of their safety day initiative.

Pink was the colour of choice, celebrating woman’s month and especially the role that women increasingly play in the mining industry. In collaboration with the Minerals Council Health & Safety Day in Mining 2018 initiative, not only was this an opportunity to celebrate but also to reinforce each employees pledge to taking safety seriously and returning home safely each day. Diana Hu,CEO, and Hannelie Hanson, General Manager, opened formalities by addressing staff on the great achievement and reminded employees to continue working safely. The zero harm pledge was signed by each employee.
