Bucim Mine, as a responsible employer, continuously provides appropriate training for its employees in the field of occupational safety and health in order to expand their knowledge and skills. This leads to a better and safer working environment, as well as improved employee performance by reducing workplace injuries and accidents.
Last week, a training was held on the premises of Bucim mine. The training was led by TECHNOLAB Skopje on an important topic: the use of personal protective equipment in workplaces exposed to chemical hazards. This training was attended by 25 occupational safety professionals from Bucim’s operating units, all of whom passed the occupational safety exam, and 10 external OSH professionals.
Through the use of practical examples and active participation of the training participants, Bucim’s employees were given the opportunity to learn about the dangers and hazards arising from workplaces exposed to chemical hazards, the risks which employees may face, as well as the measures which should be implemented to ensure safe execution of tasks in the workplace.
Occupational safety and health plays an important role in the mine’s operations; therefore, Bucim strives to establish modern, functional and harmonized occupational safety and health systems. Education and training of employees in the field of occupational safety and health are some of the most important factors for occupational safety and health. The Bucim mine strives to provide as much information and knowledge as possible to its employees. The greater the overall awareness, the lower the risk of injury at work. Trainings empower employees to take appropriate, direct action in a given situation. Every employee must know the basic rules of protection which should be adhered in accordance with Bucim’s ongoing commitment and investments in the area of occupational safety and health.
“Bucim follows and abides by the Occupational Safety and Health Act. We continually invest in the health and safety of our employees and strive to create a preventive culture in order to eliminate and manage risks to employees’ safety and health. In this regard, education is indispensable. Education and sharing experiences reinforce our employees’ ability to work properly and safely. For this reason, we pay particular attention to training and our employees’ professional development.“ said Nikolajcho Nikolov, Deputy General Manager of Bucim
