COURSE AGENDA DAY 1 09h00 Session One Your SLP, Transformation and Sustainable Development The objectives of the Social and Labour Plan are to promote employment and advance social and economic welfare as well as to contribute to the transformation of the mining industry by ensuring that holders of mining or production rights contribute towards the socio-economic development of the areas in which they are operating as well as the areas from which the majority of the workforce is sourced. In order to meet these objectives mines are required to manage diverse elements as set out in the SLP and ensure that these are integrated and support the mine’s strategic focus. This session will provide delegates with an understanding of the inter-related components of the SLP and how to set up transformational structures to facilitate socio-economic and workplace change and support sustainable development. Delegates will gain a perceptive of how transformation makes commercial sense in improving the business sustainability and is important for the maintenance of good relations with communities and the workforce. 10h30 Tea/Coffee Break 11h00 Session Two Effective Integration of HRD and Legislative Compliance While many of the issues laid out in the HRD requirements of the SLP are managed by Human Resource and Skills Development Structures, the inter-dependence between the SLP requirements and the myriad of other current and proposed legislation governing the workplace has a significant impact on how these components must be implemented, managed and reported on. Conflicting reporting requirements as set out in different pieces of legislation complicate the work of practitioners in this field. Commitments made in the SLP cannot be seen in isolation from these other requirements and delegates will gain an understanding of how to manage these inter-related yet conflicting demands. 12h30 Lunch 13h30 Session Three Sustainable LED Management Many LED projects fail to become sustainable or collapse. Successful implementation and management of these projects remains a key stumbling block for many mines as does their involvement with the local communities and those in labour-sending areas. During this session delegates will be provided with an understanding of the DMR viewpoint on LED involvement and practical advice and guidelines on how mines can support their involvement in effective and sustainable LED projects. This session will focus on establishing and maintaining successful community involvement and supporting other SLP undertakings. Managing such undertakings in the light of limited financial resources is often a challenge and attention will be given to providing ways to address these constraints.GLOBAL PROSPECTUS TRAINING (PTY) LTD.

COURSE AGENDA DAY 2 09h00 Session One Monitoring and Reporting made simple The DMR sets out reporting requirements for both the SLP and the Mining Charter that places an emphasis on demonstrating performance rather than simply producing outputs. These demands impact on the emphasis in monitoring and reporting requirements. In order to meet the reporting demands and to ensure that commitments made are effectively and sustainably implemented, a continuous process of tracking and assessing the status of implementation is required. The focus in this session will be to provide an understanding of the DMR requirements and to assist delegates in finding the right solution and designing monitoring and reporting process that support improved performance and achieve results. 10h30 Tea/Coffee Break 11h00 Session Two Managing the SLP Audit Process Any external audit can be a taxing time for your organisation. The DMR focussing on monitoring and compliance by mining rights holders has increased the number and extent of on-site audits. Participants need guidance on how to effectively prepare for and manage the on-site audit. This includes ensuring sound communication programmes for the workforce and maintenance of comprehensive documentation. 12h30 Lunch 13h30 Session Three Refining your Implementation and SLP Management processes Share your experiences and challenges and benefit from the extensive hands-on experience that Naomi can bring in the field of implementation, management and reporting on your SLP. This session will provide an opportunity for trouble-shooting and finding guidance and advice in dealing with your SLP concerns. Finding ways of dealing with and, hopefully, forestalling obstacles will provide participants with invaluable guidance to move forward with effective SLP management.GLOBAL PROSPECTUS TRAINING (PTY) LTD.
