Health and Safety

Mpact is committed to providing its employees with a safe workplace that is equipped with sufficient protection against occupational hazards and health risks. We have a health and safety policy in place which is in line with ISO 18001. We ensure that appropriate resources are allocated to the management of health and safety risks. With this working system in place, we hope to create and maintain an environment in which our employees can and want to work.



Mpact recognises the threat of HIV/AIDS to South African society. We have a Group-wide policy in place that protects the fundamental rights of any employee living with HIV/Aids and this policy is in line with the South African Constitution and Bill of Rights. We ensure that all of our employees are aware of their rights in this regard and that antiretroviral therapy is available to every employee through the national network of service providers.


While line management is accountable for the safety of employees at work, with the support of our competent safety staff, ultimately each individual is responsible for his/her own safety. To this end, Mpact ensures that all employees receive safety training relevant to their positions and to the environments in which they will be required to work. This follows an initial series of compulsory competency tests that every employee is required to undergo at the beginning of their employment, in order to ascertain that they can perform the necessary tasks safely and effectively.
