You grow and learn a lot from working at Anglo-American. Employee are treated as asset and trained to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge. The relationship between the management and the workers is a very good one as everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The values are also good especially because honest is the culture of the company to achieve safe production

A normal day at Kumba is where you get to meet new people every time. Safety is a process and it takes a while to be implemented. Management is motivated to get involved in the day to day issues regarding the staff. Everyone is committed to zero harm. Paperwork is the only hard part of the job because it takes you away from the people doing the work and implementing a new system and reaching a KPI goal is my considered my fun time at work.

The coal mines were bulk producing mines for export and power station smalls.

The management teams I worked for fully supported Anglo's need for a safe working mine. The middle management and workers did not trust the system and were difficult to sway from their old mining methodology.


I was expected to implement Anglo Health, Safety and Environmental systems to the workers and ensure compliance to that end. A typical day would require that I comply to the duties of the health and safety officer.
Pros
Employees/contractor owning the safety systems in place and going home each day unhurt
Cons
Being the middle manager closing the mistrust between management and employee

This is a one big family with a culture than can only be matched by a few. Care and respect are our core values. We have learned that as a team we depend on each other to achieve our objective - mining platinum safely and going back to our loved ones in one piece. Our management have an open door policy and we don't see them as managers but team leaders who we can interact with at any given time. Visible felt leadership is what brings them closer to their subrdinates. The co-workers are fantastic. We always make time to celebrate whatever achievement together. In terms of the hardest part of the job, seeing someone getting hurt and having to inform his/her loved ones is a nightmare. One the flip side, having a nice braai with the team after any safety achievement is the most enjoyable part of my job.
Pros
R150 christmans voucher
Cons

I love what i do, i love to do different tasks for me not to get bored. I'm a team player but i also work well i'm i'm alone. I get along well with my co-workers. I have learnt that people are different and therefor my approach to each indivivual must be different as well.Hardest job i've ever done was to do a behavior based coaching on a group of people that did not understand isizulu and english, but understood Sepedi. The most enjoyable part of my job is that i deal with different people and i make a positive change in their lives with regards to safety.

Most enjoyable part was being able to join Safety in the largest Platinum Producer in the world.
Pros

poor job security
