Finstone's satisfactory health and safety record compares favourably with other major mining operations in South Africa and internationally, a factor which has been consistently recognised by the Department of Minerals and Energy not only in relation to dimensional stone quarrying, but to the mining industry as a whole.

It is a key corporate objective of Finstone to maintain the health and well-being of all its employees. This objective is integrated into every aspect of the business with focus on:

  • Consistent improvement of safety results
  • On-going risk assessment with relevant action plans
  • Monitoring of major risks at operational site level
  • Stringent health and safety conduct

Through the combination of detailed risk assessment, the introduction of comprehensive operating procedures and a zero tolerance to non-conformance, Finstone’s staff have been able to attain and then consistently improve on world class safety standards.
