Safety, Environment Take Centre Stage At Eunisell’s Awareness Day

Published

Insights from an inhouse event Safety Awareness Day held by oil servicing firm, Eunisell Limited at its Lagos Office, showed that health, safety, preservation of the environment and staff wellbeing must be accorded priority at the workplace.

Experts at the workshop revealed that the ratio of serious accidents to near misses in the work environment was estimated at 1 to 300 at-risk behaviours. This was just one of the staggering statistics revealed at the Eunisell ‘Safe Choices’ Safety Awareness Day held at the company’s Isolo premises on 18 July 2018.

At the event, topics such as ‘How to Identify Hazards in the Workplace’ and ‘Risk Assessment for Day-to-Day Operations,’ created the necessary awareness that behind every fatality or serious injury, there are hundreds of at-risk behaviors and unidentified hazards.

Addressing the staff, group managing director of Eunisell, Mr Chika Ikenga said, “At Eunisell, safety and the environment are our primary concerns, thus we take the wellbeing of our team, customers and vendors very seriously. While working on projects, we are duty-bound and committed to implementing our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) policy as well as meeting the rigorous standards set by our customers.”

At-risk behaviour was explained as activities or work-related environmental issues that fail to meet or bypass best practices, safety programs and training procedures. Lack of HSE knowledge and awareness was also cited as a major at-risk behaviour.

Ikenga further said that “We want our business and operations to be as risk-free as possible and our impact on the environment to be minimal.

“Our approach is proactive and this is why our Health, Safety and Environment policy evolves and is adaptive to meet the unique needs of each project without comprise.”

Since its establishment in 1996, Eunisell has been providing bespoke solutions to firms in the industrial, downstream and upstream sectors, developing eco-friendly solutions to help companies achieve optimal performance and profitability.
