(i) Appeals granted - 10

(ii) Appeals dismissed – 10

August 2016 - 10 Appeals

(i) Appeals granted - 4

(ii) Appeals dismissed – 6

Question 2(a)


Considering the timeframes provided for in Regulation 74, it takes approximately 120 days to process and finalise internal appeals in the prescribed manner. The attainment of this period is dependent on the number of appeals received during a given period as well as the complexity of such appeals and capacity constraints. The 2010 Constitutional Court judgment in Bengwenyama held that internal remedies must be exhausted before judicial review proceedings may be instituted. This led to the lodgement of significantly more appeals than before as more applicants were required to exercise internal remedies.

Question 2(b)


Action Plans:

• There is continuous liaison with internal and external parties involved to expedite conclusion of the Regulation 74 process which appears to be yielding positive results.
• From time to time, the Office of the State Attorney is requested to assist with the finalisation of certain appeals.

• While implementing the above measures, historic appeals are prioritised.

• Draft regulations to significantly streamline the appeal process has already been formulated and is to be promulgated soon.

Mahlangu, Mr JL to ask the Minister of Mineral Resources:

With regards to the evaluation of safety at Lily Mine in Mpumalanga South Africa, the world and the community members of Mpumalanga were shocked with the incident that occurred in Lilly Mine in Nkomazi Mpumalanga where 3 mine workers went down 80m into a sink hole. The communities across the country shared a hope and anxiety of the families and miners at Lily Mine that are distraught. In your recent media and public announcement you made the point that it will take between 6 to 8 months for the rescue team to reach the container. Up to the date “The families of Mnisi, Mazibuko and Nyerende are still in our prayers and we trust that the emotional and psychological support they are receiving will assist them to cope with the traumatic experience.

Reply:

The question is:-

  1. Whether the department was aware that the container office was actually located in such a dangerous location.

A formal investigation is underway in terms of the legal provisions and will assist in identifying the underlying causes of the accident. On completion of investigation, recommendations will be made to prevent similar accidents.

   2. Is it your expectation the mine would have known that the container is in a dangerous location.

The above-mentioned formal investigation will assist in identifying the underlying causes of the accident.

   3. Has your department conducted assessment on other mines in the country to determine that no such dangers await other mineworkers?

The mine inspections and audits are continuously being conducted with the aim of preventing harm on the mineworkers.

In a case where sub-standard condition, act or non compliance to the provisions of the Mine Health and Safety Act is observed during a mine inspection or audit, appropriate actions are immediately taken to remedy such conditions.

  4. If yes which mines? If not why not?

The mine inspections and audits are conducted at all the operating mines.

  5.  Do we have assurance that such or similar accident will not revisit the country

We endeavor to prevent mine accidents from occurring and lessons learnt from the above-mentioned investigation will be used to improve safety in the mining sector.

   6.  Does the country have requisite skills to deal with disasters of this nature?

South Africa has the requisite skills to deal with disasters at mines and our country’s Mine Rescues Services (MRS) assisted in the Chile Mine disaster in which 33 trapped mine workers were rescued successful after 69 days.

  7. If yes where is it located, and why do we find ourselves in this situation like it is at Lily Mine where it will take close to a year to reach the container where miners are trapped?

At the Mine Rescue Services of South Africa. The rescue operations have not been abandoned but options which will ensure safe rescue operations are being pursued. This is as a result of the deterioration of ground conditions at the mine.

  8. If not why don’t we have such capacity?

South Africa has the requisite skills and capacity.

  9. Who is thus responsible for the situation that we find ourselves in?

The accident investigation will assist in identifying the underlying causes of the accident.

Schmidt, Adv H to ask the Minister of Mineral Resources:

With reference to the court decision in Glencore Operations South Africa Proprietary Limited Coal Division v Minister of Mineral Resources and Others (JR91/2014) [2016] ZALC JHB 49, dated 3 February 2016, where the decision was handed down to impose an administrative fine of R500 000 on the South Witbank Colliery after a worker died in a mine accident, (a) why did (i) he and (ii) the Mine Health and Safety Inspectorate (MHSl) fail to submit answering affidavits when the specified colliery challenged the decision in court, (b) how has the MHSI changed its operating processes to avoid this precedent being used by mines to avoid fines in future and (c) what amount is to be paid back to the mine as a consequence of the specified judgement?

Reply:

(a) The Department instructed the State Attorney to oppose the matter. A legal counsel was appointed for the matter and consultation took place between him and the Department. Counsel requested certain information from the Department and such information was provided. There was no feedback from the State Attorney on the matter until judgment was granted. The Department has requested the Chief Litigation Officer in the State Attorney's office to investigate the circumstances that caused the non-filing of the answering affidavits.

(b) The MHSI will, as soon it receives outcomes of the above-mentioned investigation, assess if there is any need to change its operating processes. However, as it stands the current operating processes followed by the MHSI in this regard are adequate and do not require any changes.

(c) The Department has paid to Glencore an amount of R696, 828.77. This amount is inclusive of R500, 000.00 administrative fine repayment and interests at 15, 5% per annum from 02nd August 2013, as per the court judgment.

With regard to his department’s new regulations that call upon surface mines to enhance safety for all trackless mobile machinery apart from reducing mining accidents how (a) effective will the specified regulations be and (b) will it reduce (i) capital expenditure and (ii) the cost of maintenance?

Reply:

The trackless mobile machinery accidents are also the major contributor of fatalities, disabilities and injuries in the mining sector. It is against this background that the Department has been implementing measures including reviewing the relevant legal provisions to protect the health and safety of the mineworkers.

(a) These regulations are expected to be effective and should result in decreased fatalities and injuries. The department will monitor the situation continuously.

(b)(i) and (ii)

 

Yes, it is envisaged that the prevention of accidents as a result of compliance to the regulations will ultimately reduce capital expenditure and cost of maintenance because there will be far less production interruptions and less money spent to repair vehicles that have collided. However, the loss of life is of utmost importance and cannot be equated to costs or profit at the mine.

Reply:

The trackless mobile machinery accidents are also the major contributor of fatalities, disabilities and injuries in the mining sector. In this regard, the Department has been implementing measures including reviewing the relevant legal provisions to protect the health and safety of the mineworkers.

The new regulations require the employer to ensure that pedestrians are prevented from being injured as a result of a collision between the trackless mobile machines or vehicles and persons, where there is a significant risk of such a collision.

 (a) These regulations are expected to be effective and should result in decreased fatalities and injuries. The department will monitor the situation continuously.

(b)  (i) and (ii)

Yes, it is envisaged that the prevention of accidents as a result of compliance to the regulations will ultimately reduce capital expenditure and cost of maintenance because there will be far less production interruptions and less money spent to repair vehicles that have collided. However the loss of life is of utmost importance and cannot be equated to costs or profit at the mine.

Does his department have a Regulatory Burden Reduction strategy in place; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the strategy?

Reply:

No,

The current Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) aptly identifies the need to consider the compliance burden and complexity of laws and regulations, and the need to improve consistency and remove unnecessary obstacles to business development. In this regard, capacity has been created in the Presidency to carry out thorough impact assessments of both new and existing legislation and regulations, in order to ensure alignment with the NDP and reduce the risk of unintended consequences.

Government will also streamline and improve the efficiency of regulatory processes, in areas such as building licences, environmental impact assessments, company registration, tax compliance, work permits for scarce skills, mining licences, water licences and access to municipal infrastructure services.

The regulatory burden reduction strategy cuts across a number of legislation/regulatory instruments that are not only administered within the DMR. Capacity for a comprehensive regulatory burden reduction strategy has resultantly been established at a central point in government and constitutes a requirement for the legislation development within government.
