The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. At Kumba we support this view. The overall health and well-being of our employees is of paramount importance. Through our health programmes we provide opportunities for all employees to attain and maintain an optimal state of health throughout employment; and endeavour to prevent the development of occupational diseases. Employee health has an impact on well-being and quality of life, as well as on occupational safety and productivity.

Our guiding principles are aligned with the Anglo American plc Group Occupational Health Policy which is underpinned by three principles:
- Zero Harm mind-set: we firmly believe that all occupational diseases are preventable
- No repeats: we learn from our occupation hygiene monitoring and occupational medical surveillance data to prevent occupational diseases
- The implementation of common, simple non-negotiable standards that are easily understood by our employees
