PTFI National Safety Month Closure: Calls for Sustainable Safe Production
14 February 2022
National Safety Month is a perfect time to reflect on the significance of workplace safety and renew our commitment to achieve safe production.
PT Freeport Indonesia officially closed the 2022 National Safety Month on February 14 in a closing ceremony held at the Kuala Kencana Fire Station in the Lowlands. The ceremony was attended by representatives of employees, government officials, the police and the army and also broadcasted to allow virtual participation from employees in different locations.
Claus Wamafma, PTFI Director and Executive Vice President-Community Affairs, said he appreciated employees’ participation in the successful safety month commemoration.
"The safety and protection of our employees remain our highest priority. This year's national safety month aimed to improve safety awareness in all workers to create a safe, productive and efficient workplace," Wamafma said.
The PTFI National Safety Month committee created various activities to promote workplace safety awareness by providing helpful information and hosting campaigns and safety-related competitions throughout the month.
Yongki Wopari, Senior Manager-Mine Maintenance, who chaired this year’s national safety month committee, explained the committee decided to use a different strategy to ensure divisions’ safety regulation adherence by conducting interdivisional inspections.
"We routinely carry out inspections to maintain compliance with health and safety protocols, especially during the pandemic. We also conducted interdivisional inspections on toxic and hazardous waste management and workplace food waste management," Wopari said.
Paulus Yanengga, Head of the Mimika Regency Manpower and Transmigration Office, appreciated PTFI’s successful national safety month celebration and encouraged all employees to prioritize sustainable, safe production.
