Mining companies urged to improve safety
Mining companies urged to improve safety The National Union of Mineworkers has called on employers in the mining industry to improve safety measures.   The call comes after a mining accident in which one of its members was killed at Harmony's Doornkop mine on the Gauteng West Rand.   The man was struck by a falling rock while he was drilling underground on Tuesday.   NUM Health and Safety Secretary, Erick Gcilitshana says: "We are deeply concerned about the rate of the fatalities in the industry. We are also passing our condolences to the family of the deceased.”   “It is unfortunate that at this point in time we still continue to have many people losing their lives in the workplace. We are appealing to the industry to apply its systems to ensure that nobody comes with a black bag from underground,” he added.   sabc.co.za
