As risk management consultant in our mining sector Johann Raubenheimer focuses on health and safety.
In addition, he offers a unique approach to the mining and heavy industries on their specific operational requirements.
Johann’s involvement is not only reactive to any risks posed to clients’ licenses or ability to operate, but he advocates pro-active identification of assessed risks through comprehensive auditing, with a view of identifying any gaps in the clients’ systems, and manages these risks by assisting clients to close the loop on any non-compliance.
This then goes hand-in-hand with internal and external seminars and tailor-made training courses for clients’ legal appointees presented on and off site.
Johann has been in invited to SACEA Conferences as guest speaker.
