Here is the whole statement as received:

Secunda, Mpumalanga – On Sunday, 15 March, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced South Africa’s decisive approach to contain the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak and declared it a national disaster. ​ ​

Sasol is prepared for and aligned with the government’s measures and will support efforts to contain the spread of the virus.   


Sasol has been closely monitoring developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in China since January. Sasol has implemented contingency measures to safeguard the health and safety of all our employees and stakeholders who interact with Sasol, against the COVID-19 outbreak.   

Emergency response and task team were initiated to manage the company’s group-wide response in a coordinated, responsible manner.   A detailed management plan has also been implemented and communicated throughout our operations globally and includes:

•social-distancing, including de-crowding initiatives;

•hygiene practice and behaviour recommendations; 


•limiting travel to business-critical needs;

•screening initiatives; and

•disabling high-frequency contact surfaces and touchpoints, such as biometric access controls

and keypads, and other high-frequency contact surfaces.  


The plan also includes comprehensive risk mitigation measures which include extensive risk scenarios to ensure business continuity during these times.   

Furthermore, various precautionary measures at our Mining and plant operations have already been implemented to provide the necessary practical support and ensure that our employees remain safe and active in their roles to provide uninterrupted service to our customers and stakeholders. ​​

Sasol has clear procedures in place to prevent the spread of the virus, identify high-risk individuals and respond to confirmed cases.  

We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to be transparent in our communication to employees, suppliers and service providers to provide updates about the COVID-19 situation. ​


We encourage our communities to remain calm and unite to contain the spread of the virus and not to spread fake news.  

Sasol remains committed to the safety and health of its employees, service providers and the community.
