The Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) professional is concerned with developing and co-ordinating systems for the creation and preservation of measures for the safety and health of employees and visitors. This involves compliance with all safety and health legislation pertaining to the use of plant, machinery, equipment and all workplace activities. It also involves assisting in the supervision of investigation of accidents and unsafe working conditions and training management and staff in regard to safety and health practices and legislation. It also involves the establishment and co-ordination of emergency procedures, fire fighting and first aid and reporting periodically to management as to the status of safety and health measures.

The Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) professional is therefore one of the key contributors to the welfare of the mining industry.

Scholarship Fund

The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy established a Scholarship Trust Fund for students in Mining and Metallurgy at South African tertiary educational Institutions in 2003. The fund holds some reserves for future years in order to smooth the flow of monies to the Institutions. Considerable funding has come from the SAIMM itself as it has contributed R220 000 each year; but significant funds have also been donated by individuals in the minerals and metals industry or by the smaller companies operating in the industry.
