Sappi Head Of ce Internal Newsletter 31 October 2017
What staff say...
Bongani Shirinda, Senior Internal
Auditor: “Our new of ce space has
created an atmosphere of collaboration
between various levels of employees. The
building itself offers enormous bene ts,
such as promoting diversity, intercultural
understanding and openness. I love the natural lightning, and the commute to work has also become easier. The modern design has captured my attention, and I’m happy that IT
has implemented improavements in technology; eg the new phone headsets, the USB charging ports, the meeting room booking system and, top of my list, the biometric system and the coffee! Well done to all involved.”

Stay safe during stormy weather
With extreme weather conditions wrecking havoc in some parts of the country, here are some safety tips to keep in mind.
When it’s raining heavily
Park your car undercover and make arrangements to delay travelling until the storm has subsided.
If you’re on the road and visibility is poor or the road is too slippery, rather pull over until visibility or traction improves.
Switch on your hazard lights if you must drive, and travel slowly. Don’t park under trees, as there is a danger of falling
branches and debris.
At home, make sure any dead and rotting branches are removed from trees to avoid the risk of falling debris during a severe storm. Also remove debris from roofs and gutters.
Make sure that your outdoor furniture is safely stored or rmly secured.
The power surge of a lightning strike can easily overload most appliances and devices. Unplug these before the storm arrives.
During a hail storm
Take note of storm warnings sent by insurers. If possible, don’t drive when there is a threat of hail.
If you’re caught, pull into an undercover parking space or concrete shelter as soon as possible, and wait the storm out.
Avoid seeking shelter under a tree, as tree limbs could fall on your vehicle causing severe damage.
If you must drive, switch on your headlights, even your car’s hazards, and keep a safe following distance.
As soon as a storm starts or if you have received a weather warning, unplug as many electronic devices as possible. This includes your Wi-Fi router, cellphone chargers, television sets and computers.
If you’re in a building during a tornado:
Go to a windowless interior room on lowest level, or go to a storm cellar or basement. If there is no basement, go to an inner hallway or smaller inner room without windows, such as a bathroom or closet.
Get away from the windows.
Stay away from corners, because they tend to attract debris.
Go to the centre of the room.
Get under a piece of sturdy furniture, such as a workbench or heavy table or desk and hold on to it.
Use your arms to protect head and neck.
When there is danger of ooding
It’s sensible to purchase a supply of sandbags, which can be placed against doorways and low-level vents in times of ooding.
Regular home maintenance, like clearing debris from gutters, is essential and will limit potential damage.
Turn off gas and electricity if ooding occurs.
Don’t drive in ood conditions. Remember that just 15cm of moving water can knock you off your feet, and water just 60cm deep can sweep a vehicle away.
Generally, if the water is deeper than the bottom of your vehicle doors, or the bottom third of your wheels, it’s not advisable to drive through it.
Flash ooding often occurs when rivers ow over low-lying bridges. Avoid crossing bridges or roads next to rivers during heavy rains.
If you get stuck on a ooded road, switch to the lowest possible gear and proceed slowly.
If you approach a ooding storm water drain at speed,
take your foot off the accelerator and let your speed drop gradually. Never use the brakes suddenly. This may cause the car to skid or aquaplane.
If trapped in a vehicle during ooding, rather abandon it and climb to higher ground. It is dangerous to try and drive out of the water to safety.
When there is danger of ooding
Never try to drive faster than the tornado. Tornadoes can change direction quickly and can lift a car or truck and toss it through the air.
Get out of the car immediately and take shelter in a nearby building.
If there is no time to get indoors, get out of the car and lie in a ditch or low-lying area away from the vehicle. Be aware of the potential for ooding.
