The Development of the Miningsafety.co.za information portal has been inspired by the development of the well known road safety website ArriveAlive.co.za. During the development of this road safety portal the developers rendered assistance to several mining companies in creating awareness of safety aspects such as safe transportation, driver fatigue, overloading etc.
Regular interaction between the Development Team of ArriveAlive.co.za and safety consultants at the mining companies confirmed that there is a need for an information portal not only focused on safe transportation for mining companies, but also to create awareness of other aspects of mining safety.
Through the development of Miningsafety.co.za we will strive to share the expertise gained in the development of a safety portal with our colleagues in the mining industry. It is our vision that this website will make a significant contribution towards protecting our mining workers from injury and loss of life.
Miningsafety.co.za will be developed in close cooperation with the mining industry and leaders in the manufacturing of safety equipment.
We would like to invite role players in the mining industry and safety experts to participate in this initiative and to share their suggestions and advice on how to further enhance the objective of greater health and safety in the mining industry!
