Technicians of the Metro Mass Transit Limited (MMT) in Accra have attended a seminar on how to ensure safety at their workplace.
The seminar, initiated by Air Liquide Ghana, educated the MMT technicians, mostly welders, on the efficient use of cutting and wielding gases and their related products and equipment.
Speaking on the theme: “Think Safety, Act Safely,” Mr Philip Creech-Jones, the Welding Business Developer and Customer Service Manager of Air Liquide Ghana, said it was important for employers in the country to have workplace safety policies and culture and ensure that employees abided by the rules and regulations enshrined in these policies.
“If local Ghanaian businesses want to grow, they must be keen about workplace safety by having a safe environment, taking care of employees and possessing the proper standards in terms of quality,” he added.
Mr Creech- Jones exhorted the technicians to religiously use the requisite protection equipment to safeguard themselves during their operations.
A workshop supervisor at the Metro Mass Transit Limited, Mr Samuel Meteku, who was a beneficiary of the seminar, said the training had come at an appropriate time when the company had put in place measures to intensify the safety of its workers.
He observed that workers of the company lacked some equipment for their operations and appealed to the company’s management to help address the issue.
