At Bokoni you planned your tasks daily and work with the teams to achieve the set goals. I have also learnt to be more assertive and innovative as there is always limited resources to successfully accomplish the tasks. Management is very supportive in times but will leave tasks and responsibilities to you to come with solutions. The work place culture at Bokoni is more of hard working, commitment and dedication although there is challenges that the mine face with the communities and other stake holders that disrupt mine activities. The hardest part of my job was to execute decisions that have impact in the business at a short period of time and at the same time more enjoyable and fulfilling as my contribution is valued in the company
Pros
none
Cons
long hours

Friendly family environment. Atokia village best environment. Communities surrounding the mine have an impact, sometimes negative but in overall positve. A very good social responsibility track record. Worked as a shift supervisorfor five years. Mining set up of very high standard when coming to training and operational norms. Management changes more often compromising the stability of the enviroment inside and outside of the operations.
Pros
Very good mine village and recreation clubs.
Cons
Very low remuneration scales.

Bokoni have good working culture they promote the spirit of Ubuntu and they respect the safety of their employees. the hardest part is that you have to give 110% as a person whose working in a safety department as the life of each and every Bokoni underground employee depends on the quality of work you produce. the love that the company have to its employees , the company always rewards good perfomances

Planned daily tasks to be completed, resolve any breakdowns, daily reporting to the Engineer, assist with transport and equipment to complete all daily tasks. Difficulty with maintaining stock levels due to budget controls. Refuse to let any task or breakdown stand over for the next shift. I set goals and complete them, every day must be an improvement.

Get in at 07H00 in the morning,proceed to the control room to see if everything is in oder,then proceed to the lamproom also to see if everything is in oder,Check my e-mails, Have a 15minutes meeting with the ventilation officer and Construction team leader.Go to the production meeting with Production manager and mine overseers. when i get to my office i scruitinize the lamproom report and control room report before sending it out, Follow up on oders at the same time checking the stores. get a report from sanitation manager.Scruitinize ventilation reports and sign them,check if there are any reports to DMR that need my attention. Do necessary layouts and updates on the mine rescue plan,update my legal file.When ventilation officer comes from underground he reports what he did and if there were challenges and we then put control measures in place, the hardest part is in the afternoon when people comes from underground as i have to deal with all issues at once e.g Mine overseer,production Manager,Chief vent Engineer, Underground employees issues. Most enjoyable part is late afeternoon when i seat with the vent officer finalizing on layouts,planning our construction work. My work comes with different challenges which makes me to learn new things daily. Around lunch time i do seat and have a chart with co-workers about general things like sport,family and other things.
Pros
Getting to know people at different levels
Cons
always on stanby for ermergency
