FrieslandCampina WAMCO on September 9, 2015, celebrated 1000 days without any Lost Time Accident (LTA) as part of the company’s SHE Week themed “Safety in your Hands, Hearts and Mind.” LTA refers to an employee’s time off work as forced by an injury sustained at work during daily operations.
Similarly, FrieslandCampina WAMCO is now ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified for maintaining the best regulatory standards for environment-friendly energy use and waste management as well as promoting the best occupational health and safety standards without legal breaches.
In his commendation to staff, Rahul Colaco, Managing Director FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria, stated that “these achievements truly demonstrate our team members’ individual and collective commitment and dedication to high personal safety standards.”
“We are proud of the high standards we have set for ourselves and the rest of the business within Nigeria. We are very proud of our employees, especially the Operations team. It is a great outcome especially when you consider that during the last 1000 days, we have completed several massive construction projects.”
“Therefore, this is a good opportunity to celebrate our value on safety which recognizes that safety is not just a priority but it is in the hearts of people. The best part is that our families back home are the biggest beneficiaries of this safety culture. Keeping safe and going home every day with a sense of safety remains a key focus in everything we do and ultimately, our ambition is to move from safety being a rule to a habit” Colaco said.
In August, FrieslandCampina WAMCO received the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Award for Safety Performance. The award recognizes successful companies with safety programs that produce tangible safety improvements. Out of more than 200 eligible companies in Lagos, 56 submitted applications and only 10 received awards this year.
