Health and safety case study videos
These videos were shot in July 2022. While it is no longer mandatory in South Africa for people to wear masks in all public areas, all COVID-19 protocols were strictly followed onsite during the creation of these videos to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
Khumbul’ekhaya is a Nguni word for “remember home”, and recognises the devastating impact that work-related deaths have on families. It intends to drive home an enhanced safety and health message.
