Acting General Manager, Stephen Perkins, when opening the Mine Safety Week in Lihir on Monday, March 27, said this was vital for the mines operations.
Perkins said a healthy lifestyle must begin with choices.
“PNG has a population of more than seven million people. The life expectancy here is 61-65 years. Good news is we can improve on that by making positive choices. The Mine Safety Week here in Lihir is about creating more awareness on what these choices are. We must be willing to make positive choices that will result in positive changes,” he said.
