MineSAFE 2011

Technical Conference and Industry day

15-18 August 2011— Conference

19 August 2011— Industry celebration day


This conference is designed to help bring South African mines to ‘Zero Harm’. All parties involved in safety on the mines participate in an endeavour
to bring about meaningful change.

The conference is a combined effort between the SAIMM, AMMSA and SACMA. With valued input from the DMR, Chamber of Mines, NUM,
Solidarity and UASA The Union. It will also be a platform for the annual hard rock safety awards. Safety in the South African hard rock mines remains
a critical focus area. As a world leader in hard rock mining the risks remain a challenge. It will be an opportunity for mines to share and learn from
operations that have shown specific advances and improvements.

The conference will present best practice from South Africa’s safe hard rock leaders. Best practice operations will share how they have managed to
change people’s attitudes and behaviour. We will also see how they have applied technological improvements and systems to reduce risks and reduce
LTIFR and fatalities. Portions of the conference will deal with improving the health of mineworkers and reduce the negative impacts on the environment surrounding mine areas.
