Guiding Principles

First Break company values are guiding principles that form a large part of the fabric that makes our company. In addition, these values are used to guide our management and personnel in day-to-day decision-making.

Hard work

Only through purposeful and diligent efforts towards a common goal can we achieve our mission to become an indispensable resource to our customers as well as our fellow workers. Hard work has long been associated with Construction and Mining. However, our employees are the best among the best. Hard work has been and will continue to be recognised at every level.


One of our most fundamental values, integrity is the harmony between a fair and morally honest belief system and the correlating actions; it can be summed up by the equation:


Many of our tasks are performed with no supervision; therefore we must trust on another’s integrity. Our loyal service to the mining industry is demonstrated by our steadfast completion of our verbal and written obligations.


We value the diverse and multifaceted talents and aspirations of every employee within the company regardless of job title or position. Each employee is regarded as an asset because of the unique contribution of each that helps to make First Break a premier service provider.


All business relations, both internally, with employees, and externally, with customers, demand utmost attentiveness, respect and understanding. From the ownership down, caring has been and will continue to be a core value that makes First Break a great place to work.
