A very warm welcome to the first digital COALSAFE 2021 conference! It is my pleasure to welcome all the eminent speakers, fellow colleagues from different mining houses across the country, service providers, subject matter experts, sponsors, and exhibitors.
The theme for this year’s COALSAFE is MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER in terms of Health, Safety, Environment and Community while adapting to the pace of change the global pandemic has presented before us as an industry. The conference will recognize high performers in the coal mining industry and acknowledge the hard work and effort the different mining houses put in to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all its employees and surrounding communities.
The virtual conference presents an opportunity for the South African Colliery Managers Association (SACMA) to bring mining houses and service providers together to learn from each other, collaborate and network. We are hopeful that all of you find this conference stimulating, rewarding and meaningful.
Stay Safe and Healthy!
COALSAFE Organizing Committee Chairperson
The COALSAFE conference has become an annual highlight on the HSEC calendar and this year will be no different! However, Coalsafe will be sporting a total new look – we are going digital!
The Covid 19-pandemic has forced the whole industry to re-look the way of conducting business and COALSAFE is moving with the times!
The theme for this year is “MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER”. This theme could not be more appropriate as it is the time now to hold hands, support each other and the industry; and come out on the other side of Covid 19 for the better.
Social, economic and natural factors have had a huge impact on the everyday lives of the nations of the world. In striving towards our 2021 goal, our commitment and dedication towards our people and the communities we operate in, enjoys huge attention.
Safety, Health Environment and Community (HSEC) standards are still at the top of the agenda and the annual HSEC Awards Ceremony for both 2020 and 2021 will again be a highlight of the day!
