Arawak’s robust H&S agenda featured prominently when the Honourable Colin Jordan, Minister of Labour and Social Partnership Relations visited the plant last Thursday, Nov 13.
Several of the company’s H&S initiatives that have been put in place to safeguard its work force and visitors were presented by General Manager, Carlos Cordero; H&S Coordinator, Seema Juman and Operations Director, Nelson Blanco.
Members of the local bargaining units, NUPW and BWU were also part of the discussions, commenting positively on Arawak’s safety achievements. The company has achieved zero lost time incidents over the last 3 years.
Arawak has committed to working with Minister Jordan by sharing its “Driving Essentials” program to be incorporated in policies for local drivers and has also agreed to get involved in a program to assist with the development of youth, based on its successful “Vulnerable Road Users” program.
