Tanga Cement PLC scoops NOSA International Award

09 September 2021, Tanga, the leading cement manufacturer in Tanzania, Tanga Cement Company

Limited (TCPLC), has recently scooped the NOSA International Award.

NOSA – the National Occupational Safety Association – is South Africa's leading provider of occupational

health, safety and environmental training solutions which was launched in 1951 by the South African

government to reduce injuries and fatalities at the workplace.

NOSA is currently South Africa’s leading occupational health, safety and environmental training provider,

offering more than 100 safety-related training courses, skills programmes and qualifications which have

been awarded various local and international accreditations.

According to the Managing Director (MD) of the Tanga Cement PLC, Mr. Reinhardt Swart, the NOSA Award

is usually bestowed upon companies and other institutions which exemplify the very highest standards of

Safety, Health and Environmental compliance – and, thus, “exceptional performance in managing

workplace hazards and risks.”

Speaking on the Award, Mr Swart said “this is a safety record for Tanga Cement PLC. It is a big achievement

for us not only as a NOSA International Award winner but also as the 1

st NOSCAR-awarded Company.

The MD further stated that, with this Award, Tanga Cement retains its place in the ‘Distinguished Class’

of NOSA-awarded companies in systems implementation.

“This is following an international competition held recently involving all first-place winners from different

NOSA Zones of operations worldwide. We were the first winner in the Northern Region (D3 Sector

Industrial Category),” he revealed.

The NOSA Award Programme involves small and large companies based within and outside South Africa.

However, Tanga Cement PLC has been participating in the Programme, actively implementing it for the

past three consecutive years – and winning the Award in its fourth year of implementation.

“In 2019/20, Tanga Cement PLC emerged the second winner in the Northern Region (D3 Sector Industrial

Category). In 2020/21, our company emerged the overall winner – and entered the international

competition, the National Occupational Safety Companies Award Recognition (NOSCAR),” he said.

These prestigious Awards qualify Tanga Cement Public Limited Company into the distinguished class of

exemplary NOSA practitioners. In effect, this means that the company is doing exceptionally well in the

performance stakes, including specially managing hazards and risks at the workplace.

The main objective for the NOSA Awards Programme is to assist clients in limiting hazards in the

workplace, while at the same time ensuring that, as the client, they are willing, able and ready/prepared

to effectively prevent and/or tackle any and all emergency situations that may arise at the workplace.
