||HIV/AIDS in the South African mining industry: Health and safety implications
||Feb. 2001, Vol.17, No.1, p.31-37. Illus. 10 ref.
||As the global HIV/AIDS epidemic continues unabated, South Africa is experiencing a rapid spread of the virus. The mining industry, in spite of having recognized the risks of the epidemic at an early stage, suffers greatly from the full impact of this disease. In addition to the socio-economic implications of the disease, it has significant consequences for occupational safety and health (impact of the disease on workers' performance, fatalistic or suicidal attitudes, risk of contagion).
