Rössing Uranium wins Inter-mine safety competition

CNNC Rössing Uranium received the Chamber of Mines of Namibia inter-mines safety award for the second consecutive year, which is a true testimony of the continuous commitment by everyone at the mine towards putting safety first as part of its drive towards zero harm.

Minister of Mines and Energy, Tom Alweendo, handing over the 2018 inter-mines safety competition award hosted by the Chamber of Mines, to Rössing HSE Manager, Jacklyn Mwenze. Rössing received the award for a second time for its safety performance in 2019.

HSE Manager, Jacklyn Mwenze, said that the award is humbling and indeed encouraging to see that the good efforts put in place by the mine are yielding results, which started operations some 44 years ago.

“It is satisfying to see that fewer people are getting hurt at the mine. Our goal is to continue on the journey towards Zero Harm.” She explained that the award is an industry recognition that Rössing is on the right path.

She emphasised that it is her firmly held belief that Zero Harm is possible and this award recognises Rössing’s commitment towards achieving this goal.

“I believe we can repeat this achievement for many more years to come. We could not have done this without each and every employee’s commitment to working safely at Rössing. We have started this and we will continue working safely, expectations are high that the award should go to Rössing again in 2021,” says Mwenze.
