Health and Safety Culture Implement culture transformation framework 21 MHSC Initiatives- OHS Summit Over the years, MHSC focus has been to control workplace risks through technical aspects or the design of systems and controls. MHSC undertook the project Changing Minds, Changing Mines to develop a framework into making a revolutionary change towards attaining zero harm in the sector.
MHSC’s Culture Transformation Vision We, the Tripartite Stakeholders of the South African Mining Sector, see a future in which EVERY MINE EMPLOYEE SHALL RETURN HOME UNHARMED EVERY DAY. Mission Through the individual and collective efforts, each member of the South African Mining Sector, shall (led by the leaders and principals), adhere to the values of care and dignity towards respect for each other; not blaming but applying fair sanction through honesty, integrity and transparency, ensuring trust; equity and equality to attain ZERO HARM.
