Promasidor Nigeria Limited has reassured its delegation to assuring the safety of its employees and risk-free operations as it outlives consistent in adherence to health and safety requirements for organisational development.

This position was strengthened at the company’s safety day held last week under the theme “No Safety, Know Pain”, where stakeholders notified the workforce on health and safety measures, both at work and home.

Directing the employees, Head, Technical of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Jean Robert Thouanel stated life is meaningful and worthwhile when safety is present and aglow, and for the company, it is continually safety first.

He said Promasidor takes delight in certifying that every employee accepts responsibility for their own safety and others around them, as well as stakeholders who may be affected by its operations. “Over the years, Promasidor has continued to improve on its safety consciousness, and as the business grows, it enhances its approach to safe work ethics,” Thouanel stated.

Thouanel, who represented Anders Einarsson, the Managing Director of the company, outlined measures undertaken on work safety to include provision of the company’s safety manuals to employees and stakeholders, safety induction for every visitor and contractor, and the upgrade of hose reel system which complements the fire hydrant system and existing hose reel’s stations.

Others include the introduction of iron barriers to buffer and protect walkways, a quarterly celebration of near-miss recorders, a new outfit for safety marshals and compliance to safety regulations.

For upholding safety ethics in the company, Promasidor presented certificates to deserving employees and urged them to be steadfast in their commitment to ensuring accident-free operations.

In his remark, the guest speaker, Lanre Eyinfunjowo, Managing Director, Donald Resources and Services Limited, who spoke on the topic, Making Safety a Culture, said safety ethics should not end at work but also be imbibed at home.

He stated that good safety culture can eliminate accidents at work and associated illness that may follow many years after, which a company may not envisage.

According to him, the International Labour Organisation’s statistic shows that 2.2million people die every year as a result of accidents at the workplace, and this could be traced to poor leadership structure in organisations where deaths occur. On this, he commended Promasidor for existing facilities to ensure workplace safety.

The safety expert explained that an organisation without proper leadership and safety measures for its workforce could have its corporate image eroded as a result of regular deaths or work-related accidents, also it may have an economic effect on the company as resources meant for development would be spent on lives and property, and also litigations from employees.

On his part, Dr Godwin Efobi, Head, Medical, Hygeia HMO, who conducted a health check for employees at the event, enlightened them on what they should know about breast and prostate cancer.

While adhering to health, safety and environment compliance, Promasidor has earned recognition from the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria which conferred the company with the ‘Best Kept Industrial Premises’ award.

It has also received commendation from the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency, Lagos State Fire Service and the National Environmental Standards and Regulatory Enforcement Agency.
