The Book: Terra Firmer

The Expectra OBM™ process as adapted for South African circumstances is explained in a new book which Expectra is promoting as part of the company’s intention to introduce innovative, and more sophisticated and workable solutions to mine safety in South Africa. It is relevant to the country’s circumstances and draws on international safety best practice.

The book entitled Terra Firmer: Behaviour Modification and Safety in South African Mining Organisations, is written by Lebeaux Mulder.

Expectra’s team of associated professionals also believes that accelerated and sustainable safety up to and after 2013 requires an integrated, continuous and sequential organisational process of change management with human behaviour at its heart.
