About WiM

WIMAC Background.

With the continued increase in WiM specific OHS and security issues in the traditionally male-biased SAMI, MHSC recognised the importance to elevate reporting of WiM OHS issues directly to Council rather than into another Committee of Council. This led to the Council in the 2019-2020 financial year approving the establishment of a stand-alone committee. WIMAC established in 2020 with duties including:
•    Reviewing of women safety performance in the different mining sub sectors;
•    Development of WiM OHS research focus areas;
•    Recommending to Council the programme of WiM OHS-related work that needs to be undertaken.
•    Identifying strategic risks that the committee may face, manage these accordingly and formally report annually to Council on how this was done.

The mandate of WIMAC is: 
•    To provide advice and evidence-based information on Women’s health in the mining industry; 
•    To identify focus areas in occupational safety (OS) for women in the mining sector and recommend a programme of research work to the Center of Excellence (CoE) on an annual basis; 
•    To advise the Council regarding the communication and publication of occupational safety related issues of women in the Mining Industry.
