Focal Point of our operation
There are statutory requirements in Nigeria, which set minimum standard for safety at work. All categories of workers and the general public who may be at risk are covered by such Legislations and codes. An example is the factories Act of 1917.
For safety to be properly practiced, it must be embedded in the policy of the organization with a reasonable level of commitment in terms of money, time, training and other resources necessary to support an effective safety standard.
