Mopani Mines Resumes Operations Again
Following some uncertainty earlier this year, Mopani Mines has resumed operations and both its Nkana and Mufulira mine sites. This came after an intensive safety audit of underground operations.
In a statement released by the Mopani Mines PR manager Nebert Mulenga, it was noted that the mine which had declared a safety work stoppage last month has now ensured that all employees underwent intensive supervisory and safety training sessions.
In addition, employees have signed letters committing to undertake safe work practices.
“It is our hope that employees have benefitted from the supervisory and training sessions, which reinforced among other things, the duty and right of each and every employee to report unsafe practices and refuse to undertake any assignment deemed unsafe,” Mr. Mulenga has said.
