HSEC & HR
In line with our Values, our priority in the workplace is to protect the health and wellbeing of all our people.
We are committed to operating safely and believe all fatalities, occupational diseases and injuries at work are preventable.
The KCC Health and Safety programme focuses on identifying and managing hazards in the workplace and is based on the Glencore SafeWork programme which aims to provide everyone with the knowledge and tools to perform every task safely; the key message is that every individual has the authority to stop unsafe work.
Consequently, at KCC we believe that every employee or contractor has the time to do every job safely, and they are empowered to stop any work they deem unsafe.
We collaborate with local health stakeholders to assess the health conditions of an area and implement strategies to address the major health risks and concerns faced by the community. We are active in the construction of new – and rehabilitation of existing – health facilities, training of local medical staff, health awareness initiatives in communities, periodic medicine donations and assistance with vaccination campaigns in urban and rural areas.
We also have a medical facility, Watu Wetu, which provides healthcare services to our employees and their dependents.
Every year KCC undertakes a comprehensive programme to protect our host communities from malaria. This includes:
- insecticide spray campaigns across our host communities
- distribution of insecticide-treated nets
- awareness campaigns on preventative measures and early diagnosis of infections
KCC’s goal is to reduce the impact of malaria on our communities.
National Programme against HIV
We contribute material and technical support to the National Programme against HIV (PNMLS). We have supported the construction of new PNMLS facilities, training of medical staff and organisation of HIV awareness campaigns.
