In 2016 like 2015, there have been zero reportable injuries, zero environmental incidents and no notable malaria case within the company.

While opening the 2017 forum company General Manager, Johnny Malec, congratulated the employees and contractors for their commitment to safety both on and off-the-job. Lessons learned from these revealed that Risk Assessment, Management of Change, Procedures and Work Management needed further work and stricter compliance.
