Following the successful completion of Phase 1 of the Safety Leadership Coaching (SLC) Program at the Kamoto Copper Company (KCC) mine, Glencore has extended the SLC scope and expanded the program (Phase 2). In addition, the program was extended to include the Mutanda Mining SARL (MUMI) mine.

Phase 2 of the KCC SLC extension is specifically targeted at training DRC National coaches to an international standard with the view of imbedding high-performance safety coaching skills in local leaders. The aim of the program is to have local leaders own and drive future safety programs within the company.

Heath Thorpe, Sustainability Executive Director – International Operations & HSE said, “The 2022 program highlights Glencore’s and Sustainability’s strategy of moving the coaching to the front-line leaders and creating a locally driven and managed program of safety leadership coaching at KCC”

“I’m extremely excited about 2022 and beyond, we’ve got a great team who are all eager to add value.” said Keith Counihan, Sustainability Project Lead.

The extension packages commenced in January 2022 and will be delivered over a 12-month period.

Clint Donkin, CEO of Glencore Copper Africa, says, “The health and safety of our workforce, host communities and contractors, is our number one priority. This program is a key enabler in developing our local safety leaders and instilling a positive safety culture that permeates everything we do.”

KCC and MUMI are both located in the province of Lualaba in the south of DRC.
