State to Strengthen Mines Safety

Government says it will strengthen mine safety regulations to improve Zambia’s workers well-being

GOVERNMENT says it will strengthen mine safety regulations in line with international rules to improve the well-being of workers in Zambia’s mining industry.

Ministry of Mines and Mineral Development permanent secretary Paul Chanda said safety cannot be over-emphasised in the mining sector.

Mr Chanda said all stakeholders should ensure that safety and occupational health are adequately funded as they are a worthwhile investment.

“Government will strengthen mine safety regulations in line with international rules to better safety issues in the sector,” he said.

Mr Chanda said this in a speech read for him by mines safety deputy director Aaron Soko during the Zambia Chamber of Mines and Council for First Aid inter-company safety competition at Konkola Stadium in Chililabombwe on Saturday.
