Cocoa Marketing Company Celebrates World Health And Safety Day

As part of the activities marking this year's World Health and Safety Day, Cocoa Marketing Company (Gh) Limited has organised  a work place health and safety lecture  for its staff across its operational areas of Tema, Takoradi and Kumasi.

 

The high lights of the series of talks was at the Head Office, Cocoa House, Accra.

The theme for the occasion was "Generation, Safe and Healthy to Improve the Safety and Health of Workers".

 

Opening the programme in Accra, the Acting Managing Director of Cocoa Marketing Company, Dr. Kwame Mensah Aborampah noted that the work place environment is full of stress, which could result in staff becoming sick and advised staff of CMC to embark on physical activities that will insulate them from avoidable diseases.

 

"Health and safety awareness is important in both our homes and offices, we must therefore take such issues seriously in order not to put ourselves in danger in our operational areas and in our homes."

 

A health, safety and environmental expert, Mr. John Mensah, noted that many people have been killed in their homes as well as their offices because they failed to adhere to practical health and safety measures and opined that, “health and safety issues have to be taken practically and seriously."

 

On managing safety at both the work place and in the home, he advised top Management as well as guardians to critically observe health and safety rules.

 

He added that health and safety issues must be practiced as a culture by all, advising CMC Management to organise and put in place procedures for identifying work place hazards so as to reduce accidents.

 

Mr .Mensah concluded that "safer you, safer me. Accident, big or small, avoid them all. If you think safety (prevention) is expensive, try accident”.
