    Dompu, 21 Februari 2024 – PT Sumbawa Timur Mining (STM), the owner of the 7th generation Contract of Work (CoW) for the Hu’u Project in Dompu Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, officially closed the series of activities for the National Occupational Safety and Health Month (K3) 2024 through a ceremony held on Wednesday (21/02) at the STM new staging area in Hu’u District. 

    The Closing Ceremony of the K3 Month was attended by representatives of the NTB Provincial Manpower and Transmigration Office (Disnakertrans), Head of the Dompu Regency Disnakertrans Miftahul Su’adah, STM Chief of Mine Operations, employees, and representatives of all contractors involved in the Hu’u Project. The event continued with the announcement of the winners of the competitions held during the K3 Month and a workshop on occupational safety delivered by the NTB Provincial Disnakertrans.

    From January 12 to February 12, 2024, STM held a series of National K3 Month 2024 activities in the Hu’u Project area. Activities included K3-themed competitions involving STM employees and contractors, education for the community on fire management in the home, and education for school students on safe driving and the dangers of drug abuse. In addition, STM also held a blood donation program for employees and contractors and managed to collect 86 blood bags.

    In the closing moment of the K3 Month, the Chief of Mine Operations STM, Yan Fuadi also conveyed several K3 culture implementations in the Hu’u Project that have been carried out by the company so far. The program covers all lines from frontliners to management through K3 training for local and national employees, as well as K3 socialization to the community around the mining area. One of the programs implemented is Stop Work Authorization, a right that every employee must stop work that is seen as unsafe and management guarantees that there will be no consequences from the termination.

    “With the implementation of the K3 culture, it is hoped that every employee involved can continue to work safely, return home safely, and all Hu’u Project activities can run smoothly according to the target, in line with this year’s theme of Cultivating K3, Healthy and Safe Work, Maintaining Business Continuity,” said Yan Fuadi.

    STM Achieves 6 Million Hours of Work Without a Serious Accident

    The closing ceremony of this K3 Month also marks and celebrates STM’s commitment to prioritizing occupational safety, as evidenced by the achievement of 6 million hours of work without LTI (Lost Time Injury) since 2022.

    Yan Fuadi stated that this achievement is a valuable thing for the company considering that exploration activities in the mining industry are a high-risk work environment.

    “Our top priority during the exploration phase of mining operations is safety. We attach great importance to compliance with strict safety protocols to ensure a safe working environment for all workers involved in the Hu’u Project employees. We are united in maintaining the highest standards, reducing the risk of potential work accidents, and creating a healthy and safe workplace,” he said.
