@ The Coalface August 2021
This month it’s all about family. A family isn’t always something you are born into. Families are formed by anything that brings people together. Whether it be through bonds of friendship, standing together through struggles, united in a passion, or simply working side by side.
Like the team of 16 firefighters at Singleton Fire Station, 12 of which also work in the mining industry. This dedicated team are committed to protecting their community and protecting each other and that forms a bond that can’t be broken. Next time you see one of these firefighters out and about, make sure you let them know just how much they are appreciated.
Family ties couldn’t be stronger at Cessnock Engineering. While the business is passing down to the next generation, it will still operate on the same foundations of integrity and quality that Geoff Roberts started in 1970 and carry on the legacy he created.
This month we learn about Glencore’s Indigenous Employment Pathways Program, a fantastic training and employment program for Indigenous Australians in our local community. As the participants learn and develop together, they are forming new friendships and gaining mentors in our industry that will no doubt support them in their future careers.
The most important thing a family provides is safety. That’s why Walton Mine Services are proud to unveil their new Fail Safe Spacer. A family-owned business that considers each and every employee an extended member of the family, keeping them safe is their number one priority. And keeping every other worker in the industry safe so they can go home to their family.
And last but not least the @ The Coalface family. To our loyal readers and supporters, know that we are so very proud and so very thankful that you are a part of our family.
