‘Zero Harm’ Safety Campaign

To Revitalise Ingwe’s Zero Harm Safety Initiatives, Ingwe’s President and COO, Mahomed Seedat, launched a ‘Zero Harm’ Safety Campaign.

The campaign equipped each and every employee with a ‘Red Card’ which gives him or her the authority to stop any unsafe situation at work.

The launch of the campaign was held at Vandyksdrift Recreation Club on Monday, 28th June 2004 and almost 400 Ingwe employees attended the event and displayed great support and commitment to the new campaign.

The ‘Red Card’ has the following printed on it: “I Mahomed Seedat, in my capacity as President and Chief Operating Officer of Ingwe Collieries, hereby authorise the card holder to stop any person deemed to be at risk, or any activity considered to be unsafe”.

The flip side of the ‘Red Card’ has the 5 ‘Life Saving Rules’ printed on it.

Red Card

  • The Red Card is a simple tool that empowers the holder to stop any …unsafe activity that the holder has witnessed

  • Once the perceived at risk behaviour has been suspended the initiator of …the red card will along with the employee and their supervisor discuss …the at risk behaviour and seek to identify remedial actions to eliminate …the risk

  • The red card intervention is recorded on a Work Place Safety …Observation Sheet and a Corrective Action Request Form is Issued

  • The information is recorded on a data base to enable analysis of the at …risk behaviour

Yellow Card

Why a “Yellow Card” ?

Following our COO and President’s innovation to STOP unsafe work with the “Red Card”, the “Yellow Card” supports this initiative by increasing employee awareness with regard to MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE in order to provide a workplace where it is possible to work without injury or illness.

RED means STOP

YELLOW means CAUTION

“prevention is better than cure”
