Code of Practice

Saxum is highly skilled in the compilation of COPs to Combat Rock Fall Accidents. The COP to Combat Rock/Roof Fall and Slope Instability Related Accidents is a Mandatory Document for all operating mines. It is drafted and reviewed at least every two years by the employer through participation of the Health and Safety committee, management, technical experts, contractors and employee representatives. It defines the geological and geotechnical environment and mining parameters in which the mine operates. It highlights risks to prevent accidents, loss of work hours and equipment and to create an overall safe working environment for all concerned.
