Workshop on safety, health for artisans ends

A-day’s refresher workshop on safety and health has been held for welders and other artisans from Zone Eight of the Suame Magazine.

The workshop, organised by Air Liquide Ghana Limited, leading distributors of oxygen and welding tools in the country, formed part of the annual safety educational campaign, which is organised in March every year to ensure safety and good health among artisans who patronise its products.

 Speaking during the workshop, Mr Yaw Amoako Mensah, Kumasi Area Sales and Marketing representative of Air Liquide, said industrial oxygen for welding and other services was a good servant, but a bad master and, therefore, artisans must  put in place safety measures and policies to save life and property.              

He said the company was not only interested in making profit from the sale of its products, but also concerned with safety and health of the people who patronised its products.

Mr Mensah said the success of the company depended on the good health of the artisans, the management and proper handling of oxygen and other products of the company.

He advised the artisans to form co-operatives to enable them to enjoy discounts and other flexible terms of the company to boost and sustain their business for the  industrial development of the country.         

Mr Eric Kwabena Adabanya, Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager of Air Liquide, said the workshop was instituted by the company to ensure the safety and good health of artisans.

He said the workshop, which started from the Greater Accra Region, would be replicated in the other regions in the country.       

In their contributions, the artisans expressed their appreciation to the management of Air Liquide Ghana Limited, for the support and training.

They said such cordial relationship and regular training (on how to handle oxygen and other products) would not only ensure their safety and help them in managing the  products, but it would also boost their efficiency.

The artisans appealed to the company for the regular supply of oxygen and other products of the company to enable them to continually patronise their products.
