Health & Safety Training

At the Bisha Mine, we run a growing occupational health program that aims to provide ongoing training, program development, and inspections to keep our workers safe and healthy.

Occupational Health and Safety is part of our mandatory induction training for all workers. It includes training in hazard identification, fire awareness, noise, dehydration, proper lifting techniques, personal protective equipment, and lockout and tag-out (isolation). The first aid training component is presented by the Eritrean Ministry of Health and coordinated by the Bisha Training Centre.

Beyond induction training, our Bisha Training Centre also offers sessions on Field Level Risk Assessment (FLRA), and food safety and hygiene. In 2016, awareness training was provided to our kitchen staff on the use and care for sharp metallic objects, kitchen hygiene and sanitation for food handlers.
