Musa Mokoena

HSC Manager

Isisekelo Engineering

After 25-years of experience at Arnot Coal Mine, Musa was retrenched in 2020 when the Coal Supply Agreement (CSA) ended between the Mine and Eskom. Seeing that his passion was cut short within SHEQ, Musa started his own company, Royal Bakoena Services (RBS) and got involved in part-time SHEQ Consulting Services. In 2021, his company partnered with Isisekelo Engineering Services (IES) and is currently involved in different Construction Projects where he is responsible for SHEQ Services. His responsibility within IES is not limited to SHEQ but much broader as he is responsible for Community Development.
