Edward Kleinhans was employed by me in the capacity of Chief Fire and Emergency Officer on a large opencast copper mine in the southern DRC in 2012 and 2013 and reported directly to myself as Head of the SHEQ Department.
During that time I found Edward to be a willing and highly motivated individual, a self-starter who is confident in his knowledge of his specialist functions and his ability to make the necessary decisions to perform his duties to the required level. Additionally, Edward was always willing to assist with the other functions in the Department (Health, Safety, Environment and Quality) and would often respond to incidents and assist even though his particular skills were not directly required.
He proved a popular member of both the Department and the Emergency Response Team structure and in my opinion his enthusiasm and commitment contributed enormously to the successful up-skilling and improved morale of the volunteer responders achieved during his tenure.
I would not hesitate to employ Edward again should the need / opportunity arise and would recommend him to anyone who might have need of his skills and expertise.
