Mining and Industry in South Africa

Occupational Health and Safety in the Mining and Industrial sector

Smart risk assessors offer optimum nutrition to its workforce via nutritional supplements, logically leading to higher productivity, increased motivation and fewer incidents. The fuel you put in dictates performance.

Back to Basics nutrition supplements  fed in excess of 10 million portions to mine workers in the last 8 years. We have had no negative reports and continue to provide assurance of safety for all healthy workers as well as those suffering lifestyle diseases. Back to Basics – Nutrition Low GI range suits all, alleviating the need to provide different supplements for those workers suffering lifestyle illnesses.

We believe this has made a contribution to mining safety and increased productivity in the South African mining industry.
