mining and development sector underground (Current Employee), Witbank, MPFebruary 2, 2016
Pros: we work well as a team
Cons: the language barrier can be a problem sometimes
it would be to start off with our D.S.B where min targets , safety tips and so on are high lighted and we discuss the job tasks at hand . WE THEN GET TO KNOW AND FAMILIARIZE what is required of us as a team and then get ready for going underground an perform those tasks to the fullest extent of our experience and ensure the safety of ourselves and that of our colleagues

I dealt with anything to make the operators life easier from HR to payroll.

I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked at this great company.

shift supervisor (Current Employee), Thabazimbi, LPDecember 6, 2015
Cons: No time to knock off, this is the most borring
So many challenges we face on daily basis specially because of the UNIONS tha is influencing employees negatively.

Dispite the challages I managed to bring my teams together and starting to achieve incredible results.

The hard part of this job is the preasure i get from both the managment and the crews. When the management brings changes in standard and Code Of Practice the crews are always resistant to implemment.

The most enjoyeble part of this job is when I get recognition and receiving presents as a best performer

Safety Officer (Current Employee), MpumalangaJuly 30, 2015
I love what i do, i love to do different tasks for me not to get bored. I'm a team player but i also work well i'm i'm alone. I get along well with my co-workers. I have learnt that people are different and therefor my approach to each indivivual must be different as well.Hardest job i've ever done was to do a behavior based coaching on a group of people that did not understand isizulu and english, but understood Sepedi. The most enjoyable part of my job is that i deal with different people and i make a positive change in their lives with regards to safety.
