Recently Sasol hosted an event to honour and celebrate the public sector health workers in GMM for their commitment and upstanding work on the front lines during the lockdown.

The event was to ensure that the health workers are aware that they did not go unseen during the time of COVID-19.

“Sasol appreciates and thanks the Healthcare Professionals for their bravery, for going above and beyond their call of duty and for their self-sacrificing courage. They are our everyday heroes, working selflessly with compassion to perform lifesaving work on the COVID-19 frontline, while placing themselves in harm’s way with limited resources and immense pressure,” said Simon Baloyi, Senior Vice President: Secunda Chemicals Operations.
