DDTV VIDEO: WATCH AS SHERIFF TURNED AWAY FROM EVICTION – DONEGAL CAMPAIGNERS TO BACK MOVES HERE

first_imgTHIS is the video which has caused “great excitement” amongst anti-austerity campaigners in Co Donegal – a deputy sheriff turning back on a planned eviction in Co Laois.Now campaigners here are planning to adopt similar measures to prevent evictions in this county.The video shows how housing activists and an independent TD prevented an attempted eviction of a man from his home in Laois. A collection of housing groups and the People Before Profit TD Joan Collins were in Mountrath to prevent the deputy sheriff, accompanied by the gardaí, from evicting a man from his home, arguing that their actions were not constitutional.Lee Wellstead, 47, was facing eviction from his home having lost in his battle against Ulster Bank in the Commercial Court, the Laois Nationalist reported.He had bought the three-bedroom property on four acres of land in Knockanina – near Mountrath and Castletown – in 2003 for €80,000 and then acquired a top loan on the mortgage of €30,000. Having failed to keep up with repayments, the bank pursued him and was granted a repossession order last year, the paper reports.Collins said she heard about Wellstead’s story and travelled to Laois with the other groups to help him defend his home.In the video entitled ‘Constitution Halts Sheriff’ Ben Gilroy from Freedom from All Debt argues with the deputy sheriff, Pat Dunne, that it is unconstitutional for him to attempt to evict Wellstead from his home.  DDTV VIDEO: WATCH AS SHERIFF TURNED AWAY FROM EVICTION – DONEGAL CAMPAIGNERS TO BACK MOVES HERE was last modified: February 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DDTV VIDEO: WATCH AS SHERIFF TURNED AWAY FROM EVICTION – DONEGAL CAMPAIGNERS TO BACK MOVES HERElast_img read more

Sibanye – Stillwater commits to improving safety at work as it rolls out its safety strategy

first_imgSouth Africa’s economic activity is mainly centred on mining, therefore, it is important that crucial safety strategies are implemented. The safety of employees is very imperative particularly in the mining sector as success lies in the employees’ capability to work effectively in a conducive environment. It is every employee’s right to work in a safe and healthy environment, no employees should have to suffer because of preventable dangers in the work environment.In 2014 the mining sector contributed R18 billion to the South African fiscus, a total of 495,568 people were employed. With numbers like these, it has become necessary for all stakeholders to work together, to support and enable the achievement of zero harm in the workplace.Sibanye-Stillwater is the largest individual producer of precious metals in South Africa and is one of 10 largest gold producers globally. It has recently experienced a significant increase in incidents, with 20 employees having lost their lives in nine separate incidents since February 2018.In a recent statement CEO of Sibanye-Stillwater, Mr Neal Froneman said; “One life lost is one too many. We are appalled by the loss of our employees’ lives at our mines over the past few months. It pains all of us when employees are injured or lose their lives in safety incidents. While we cannot rectify the harm that has occurred, we will continue to support the families as best we can in their grief”.In the process of improving safety at all their operations, Sibanye – Stillwater rolled out a safety strategy in 2017. “The safety of employees is our primary concern and, if it is not safe to operate, we expect conditions to be fixed before work can resume at a working place. There is substantial evidence that well-organised workplaces are both safe and productive, and that is our aim”, adds Froneman.Sibanye – Stillwater has committed to;Launch a safety summit with stakeholders to work towards a common goal of reducing work-related fatal accidents and injuriesContinue to provide necessary support, including counselling, financial backing, housing, education support and other benefits to the grieving families of the deceased employeesSupport and promote adherence to Section 23 of the Mine Health and Safety ActEstablished safety programmes which inform employees, supervisors and managers about the right to withdraw from an unsafe workplace and how to apply Section 23 responsiblyInstituted a programme to promote the behaviour change required so that the right to withdraw becomes an integral part of our workplace cultureAfford employees a formal grievance procedure and an anonymous tip-offs system that any employee can use if they are given an unlawful instruction or are victimised.The launch of Digiine a collaborative partnership between Sibanye – Stillwater and the University of the Witwatersrand is expected to complement and improve safety and operating effectiveness.last_img read more
