Sasol to conduct emergency simulation exercise on N1 highway near the Greenland’s Bridge

Date: 
14 March 2018

Free State, South Africa – On Thursday, 15 March 2018, Sasol in conjunction with SANRAL and Free State local emergency services, will stage an emergency simulation exercise at the Greenland’s Bridge on the N1 highway.

Safety is the cornerstone ingredient for the sustainability of our business, it is therefore of utmost importance to ensure that our emergency response systems are adequately equipped to deal with off-site transportation emergencies, with minimal impact to the public.

These annual training exercises depict real-life scenarios and are conducted in a controlled environment under the auspices of district officials from the Fezile Dabi Road Incident Management System (RIMS).

Important to note: 

  • Both sides of the road will be closed-off to traffic, but alternative routes will be provided by the local traffic department.
  • No environmental damage will be caused as a result of the exercise.

 

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts that relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects (including LCCP), oil and gas reserves and cost reductions, including in connection with our BPEP, RP and our business performance outlook. Words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend", “seek”, “will”, “plan”, “could”, “may”, “endeavour”, “target”, “forecast” and “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 28 August 2017 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
