The Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC), on Friday, unveiled its newly upgraded staff clinic at the Corporation’s Headquarters in Ojodu-Berger, Ikeja, in its bid to provide adequate medical needs for all staff of the Corporation.
The General Manager, LSPWC, Engr. Olufemi Daramola, while unveiling the Clinic thanked the Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for the support in ensuring that the clinic was upgraded to cater to the present day medical needs of employees.
He revealed that Mr. Governor considered and approved the upgrade of the Staff Clinic as a welfare measure for the Corporation to take adequate care of its staff who worked on the roads day and night, including public holidays.
“We thank the administration of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for making the health of workers paramount, hence the upgrade of the clinic. The clinic is a very vital part of our operations because it gives staff members the opportunity to check their health before going to sites and after coming back”, Daramola said.
While noting that the upgraded clinic will ensure that the over 350 project staff of the Corporation get the best basic and emergency medical attention, in case of any occupational hazard encountered during the discharge of their duties, he pointed out that regular blood pressure and sugar level checks will be carried out on the staff to easily mitigate against any adverse effect on their personal health and productivity.
Daramola also noted that since the first index case of the Coronavirus pandemic in Lagos State, the Corporation has always ensured that its workers go through regular checks, stressing that the newly upgraded clinic will improve the capacity to take care of the health needs of staff.
“The Administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has breathed life into Public Works in the last one year with enhanced welfare of all staff, upgrading of construction equipment and general welfare of the workforce. This has assisted the Corporation to focus on the implementation of the Zero Tolerance for Potholes with the rehabilitation of over 260 roads across the State in the last year”, he disclosed.
