Lafarge Africa Plc, a leading construction solutions company in Nigeria, has enjoined Nigerians to be safety conscious in this festive season as they cope with the attendant increase in human and vehicular movements.
The call was made by the Country CEO, Michel Puchercos, while addressing the media at the company’s Lagos office.
Mr. Puchercos emphasised Lafarge Africa’s commitment to extend its culture of health and safety beyond employees, contractors, communities, and customers to the government and the Nigerian public.
“At this festive period, the Nigerian government and citizens must do more to prevent accidents and create a healthy and safe environment for the families, homes, work places, worship centres, communities, and so on.
“To achieve this, accident prevention, disaster preparedness, emergency response, periodic health checks as well as first aid training, are important safety measures that must be taken,” he said.
The Country CEO charged members of the public to take a cue from Lafarge Africa by cultivating the habit of creating a healthy and safe environment for everyone in the society, maintaining a global health and safety management system designed to continuously improve daily human performance and actively manage risk in daily human activities.
“As a leader in the construction sector, our aspiration is to conduct our business with zero harm to people. We believe in visible leadership and personal accountability for health and safety at all levels and throughout our organisation.
“This is what we are calling on the Nigerian public to emulate during this festive season and beyond,” Puchercos said.
