As a company involved in mining and building construction, MBC has a critical concern in taking all possible steps to ensure the health and safety of persons, equipment, environment and all other company property.

MBC has Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) policy statement which spells out the overall health and safety strategies and directives. This policy creates a structure of action to achieve her health and safety objectives, goals and other programmes as required by international and national regulations.

MBC is therefore committed to the prevention of injuries, illnesses and damages associated with her activities and to achieve a high level of OHS compliance.

It is the objective of the company to achieve zero injury in our operations and maintain healthy environmental working conditions. Hence, MBC offers free medical care and surveillance for all employees at various sites and also provides healthy meals, provides adequate PPEs and tools to ensure effective performance on the job.

Eliminating workplace injuries is an ongoing challenge as situations change and new hazards are identified but MBC has stood up to the challenge as testified by our excellent safety record.
