   HSE

  Our Approach


Health, Safety & Environment issues are regarded a very critical value within the Gem Diamonds Group and specifically at Lets'eng Diamonds. Programmes to ensure continual improvement on HSE performance are in place. These programmes promote occupational health, prevention of injuries, protection to of property damage and protecting the environment. Subscription to an internationally-acclaimed HSE management system is one clear indication of Lets'eng Diamonds' commitment and belief that Zero Harm is attainable. National statutes provide bare minimal standards. Therefore, genuine

commitment to preventing accidents and incidents, especially in accident-prone mining and construction sectors, can only be achieved through continual improvement. Sound planning and leadership are key to providing strategic direction on health, safety and environment. Involvement of management and employees at all levels gives impetus to our programmes. Some of the key pillars of our health, safety and environment programme at Lets'eng Diamonds are: provision of enabling training, competencies, effective communication, management of operational risk and change, prompt reporting of incidents, including near-misses, at-risk behaviour and conditions, prevention-oriented investigations, sound management of corrective and preventive actions, promotion of safe behaviour, brother's keeper principle at all levels and Visible Felt Leadership.

  Environment

 

Lets'eng Diamond Mine is dedicated to clean, green and healthy Environment. Lets'eng undertakes its activities in a manner that strives to minimize adverse and negative impacts. Where it makes economic sense to mine other than to conserve the environment, off-sets are done through off-site conservations. Lets'eng is thereby a leading diamond mine in terms of its activities for clean Environment in Lesotho. It is for this reason that the mine raised the flag for current and future generations. Lets'eng Diamonds shall leave a legacy that will forever say "Our Environment, Our Future".
