The theme for 2012 was ‘real safety begins with me’, placing the emphasis on the importance of the contribution of every employee to ensure that they return home safely at the end of each
day/shift. Safety remains a core value at Kumba with the company committed to our vision of Zero Harm. There was a strong emphasis on Visible Felt Leadership (VFL) and personal accountability for safety. Our strategy is underpinned by on-going, effective risk identification and mitigation and through the consistent application of simple and non-negotiable standards. At Kumba we believe that all injuries are preventable and that the necessary steps are taken to learn from incidents by sharing the findings of investigations into these incidents and implementing the necessary changes across all operations so as to prevent their reoccurrence.
