Dear MHSC staff
Would like to first start by appreciating each and every staff Imember of the Mine Health and Safety Council for all of your hard work. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. 2017 has been one of the busiest years with lots of challenges but we pulled through as a team.
This year we were busy with the implementation of the Centre of Excellence. A game changer for the industry and the Mine Health and Safety Council. Indeed we have great work planned for the Council in 2018. We are being joined by new staff members with more staff joining us in the new year. The MHSC family is growing and this should translate to the increase of the MHSC footprint in the South African Mining Industry.
The clean audit is another highlight for the Mine Health and Safety Council. What the clean audit means is that the financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or noncompliance with legislation. This is a trend we should continue with as the Council
To all the Business Units – well done on your achievements this year. In areas where we need to improve; it's doable and let us make those necessary improvements. May we start the New Year with g r e a t e r e n e r g y, a g r e a t e r determination to succeed and a renewed commitment to be the best at what we do. Take care of yourselves as you spend time with your loved ones; be safe on the roads!
