I am a self-motivated, goal orientated individual, who is able to perform tasks in a team or individually. I do have

report writing skills from practical work from my institution. I am willing to learn and open to new ideas and learning

experiences. I am a hard and energetic person. I received a recognition award at Zincor. I know that I have the ability

and lust to overcome any obstacles in my path and nothing stops me until I have achieved the best results and


All my work experience was SHEQ related. I started working as a Quality lab analyst, where all test work was done on

products from the plant. Stricken SHEQ regulations and procedures was implemented and followed during these

analyses. All work done was monitored and audited using the ISO standards.I have worked with minerals and mentals.

While working as a SHEQ Admin assistant I was able to implement most ISO and OSHAS acts as I worked hand in

hand with the SHEQ managers. I was able to learn a lot in each section and implement the knowledge in my

everyday working environment.

At meadow feeds, Quality was the biggest aspect. All procedures and standards had to be followed so that we could

guarantee excellent services to the customers. I had to follow stricken ISO systems to make sure products that left

the company was of excellent quality, done at the best time and complied with the ISO standards and government

standards. Quality control was also my responsibility as I had to make sure the industry followed hygiene standards.

Overall, I am a hard working person who strives for the best results timeously. I would consider myself a very

focused person. I never give up or rest until I have achieved the best outcome for the task.
