Management Approach

The management of SHEQ is based on the international standards of ISO14001, OHSAS18001 and ISO9001. The strategy is to get each mining operation certified to international standards-based management systems for SHEQ. This ensures a systematic and common approach to SHEQ management and enables easy coordination and alignment of business processes with the organization’s strategy and delivery channels.    

How Mine and Shamva Mine are certified to the three systems ISO14001, OHSAS18001 and ISO9001. Mazowe Mine is certified to ISO14001. The plan is to have all the other mines also certified to the three international standards. Metallon Management Services is also working towards ISO 9001 certification. A Board SHE Committee is in place to exercise oversight on SHEQ issues and for advising and making recommendations to the Board of Directors.

The Group SHEQ Manager is responsible for the timely development and effective implementation of the Group SHEQ strategies and policies.

Each operation has a competent SHEQ practitioner, who is responsible for the development, implementation and maintenance of all the mine SHEQ management programmes. Overall responsibility for the management of departmental SHEQ issues lies with the respective head of department.
