Kitwe, Zambia – On the 7th of March Group R Mining & Exploration Zambia Ltd, the operating partner of Africa One Holdings Ltd in Zambia, recorded 800 LTI Free shifts. LTI stands for Lost Time Injury, which is any injury that prevents any person, staff or contractor reporting to work on the next shift or day. This again proves the importance of modern mechanized mining methods in the safety of workers.

We are extremely proud of our team and their dedication to safety” says Hannes van Staden CEO of Group R. “These high safety standards can only be achieved when staff give their total dedication towards safety and as management we greatly value the passion towards quality and safe work that is entrenched in our staff” continues van Staden.

“Safety underground is not a target but a daily focus and at Group R we empower all our staff with the skill and knowledge to work safely. We are thus confident that the current safety records will be maintained in the future” says van Staden.
