Health and safety

The machines and certain materials at Metair’s manufacturing facilities can be potentially dangerous if safety policies and practices are not in place and adhered to. The most common workplace injuries in the group operations include cuts, bruises, back and muscle strains and burns. The Metair group safety, health and environmental (SHE) policy sets guiding principles that are implemented at the subsidiaries through detailed policies that align their specific situation with the group policy.

Metair’s health and safety policies align with the relevant legal frameworks, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), No. 85 of 1993. A health and safety template has been designed based on the ISO 45001 framework to assist subsidiaries with compliance, continuous improvement and best practices. Eleven of our operations are accredited in terms of OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001.
