Winners of the National Safety Awards 2010

The National Safety Awards was held last evening at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad. The awards are meant to recognize a team or an individual who has implemented an innovative safety initiative, solution or system in the workplace or a company that has made the most extensive efforts to comply with and fulfil the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (2004) as demonstrated in their safety management systems.

NGC is main sponsor of the event for the period 2010 to 2012. In his remarks to the audience, NGC President S Andrew Mc Intosh indicated that NGC’s support of the event solidifies the company’s commitment to and appreciation for those who aim to inculcate a culture of workplace safety thus ensuring that all people, places and processes are of the highest operating standards and that caring for life is not just lip service but rather a genuine practice.

The Honourable Rennie Dumas, Minister of Labour and Small and Micro-enterprise Development stressed that “Occupational Safety and Health goals will ultimately depend on the wholehearted involvement of employers, employees, and government, a tripartite force with a shared vision of health and safety in workplaces”, since “the ultimate objective is to raise awareness and encourage the necessary dialogue that will help build a national safety culture. “
