With an Emphasis on Safety and Training, Lesedi Drilling and Mining Contracting Company Has Built Up an Esteemed List of Customers

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - As with all contracting and mining companies, ensuring employee safety and educating staff are crucial issues for Lesedi. "Safety has to be a culture in which people instinctively act in a safe way," notes the Lesedi website. "That can only happen if the top and middle management of the company live, breathe and champion safe working practices all the time and the people operating machinery are properly trained."

Every year Lesedi's Safety Steering Committee carries out health and safety reviews which are published on the company's website. The committee reviews health and safety policies and procedures as well as ensuring the company is adhering to and complying with national legislation.

The company believes they have adapted well to a constantly evolving South African economy, reached out to the community, improved employee well-being and remained cost effective, all the while positioning Lesedi ahead of its competitors.

"This includes requirements in terms of black economic empowerment, ownership and our safety record. In addition our core business is managed internally and non-core business is contracted out, resulting in reduced fixed overhead costs," reveals Lesedi.
