Public Health Inspectors have suspended operations and mining activities at Sezic Resources Company Limited due to non compliance with the occupational health and safety measures.
This was after health Inspectors from Ministry of Health and Sinazongwe Town Council led by acting District Director of Health Terrence Chookwe carried out a routine inspection to ascertain whether the company was complying with the requirements of the occupational health and safety act.
The Health Inspectors found that workers at the mine were working without wearing complete personal protective equipment which included no work suits, safety shoes, gloves and respirators among them.
They further discovered that the company was operating without a safety and environmental officer to help ensure safety measures and environmental requirements are met to stipulated standards.
ZANIS reports that efforts to get a comment from Sezic Resources Company Limited Manager proved futile.
