The Mankanyi Approach: Prevent. Promote. Protect.
The Dust Initiative.Problem: Burden of Respiratory DiseaseSolution: Prevent.•Primary prevention: Engineering controls•Secondary prevention: Surveillance and screening•Tertiary Prevention: Diagnosis and rehabilitation Private Sector Mining MinersStrategy: Companies•Modification and extension of SIMRAC Phase 2 Public Sector Ministry of Ministry of Ministry of Health Finance Mining
Community Transformation Project.Problem: Lack of mining-communityintegration Promote.Solution:•Community development agreements•Conversion of hostels to family units•Procurement from HDSAs of consumables and Private Sector services Mining Miners CompaniesStrategy:•Legislation on when a CDA is required Public Sector•License forfeiture Ministry of Ministry of Ministry of Health Finance Mining
Miner Compensation Reform.Problem: Awareness, accessibility, andstructure of the compensation system Protect.Solution:•1. Awareness: Worker and health care professionals•2.

Benefits of The 3 Ps.• Utilization and modification of existing institutional arrangements• Restoring governmental popularity and credibility• Empowering local communities• Comprehensive reform
Looking Forward.• Good governance• Labor brokering• Union relations• Company transparency• Accountability• Home state liability
Conclusion. By preventing respiratory harm through The Dust Initiative, promoting a long term commitment to housing and health care through the Community TransformationProject, and protecting the welfare of miners and their families with The Miner Compensation Reform Plan, our proposaleffectively and sustainably improves the state and image of the mining industry in South Africa.
