Crushing it! Health and safety achievers awarded

Home Infrastructure Construction & Civils Crushing it! Health and safety achievers awarded

SEVERAL companies and individuals from KwaZulu-Natal were among the winners at this year’s health and safety awards held by surface mining industry association, ASPASA.

Rather than a formal ceremony the association opted for a large-scale online meeting with all winners and stakeholders present to share in the achievements of recipients.

In line with previous years, the awards also proved the growing move towards establishing safer working environments and reflected a significant average score increase over the previous year.

According to independent auditor, Marius van Deventer, the overall audit scores of all ASPASA members audited during 2019 and the vast majority of participants increased their audit scores over the previous year.

“It seems unfair to single out only a few winners this time, but these are truly deserving winners in an industry-segment that is widely acknowledged as the best in the industry for HSE,” he said.

  • Top performer  – Raumix Aggregates Crushco
