Etisalat Supports Safety, Health and Environment Conference

Nigeria‘s fastest growing and most innovative telecommunications company, Etisalat has lent its support to the third West African Safety Health Environment and Quality (WASHEQ) Conference held in Lagos recently.

Chief Commercial Officer, Etisalat Nigeria, Matthew Willsher said that as a company, Etisalat Nigeria places priority on issues of safety, health, environment and quality, hence it was an easy decision to identify with the Conference and its objectives.

“Etisalat is an organization that is particular about quality of service, but quality can only be guaranteed when employees are safe and in good health. Good health to a great extent can be impacted by the environment, hence we make conscious efforts to strike a balance in all the key areas,” Willsher said.

Focal Point for WASHEQ in Nigeria, Engr. Jamiu Badmos, said: “We brought this year’s conference to Nigeria because there are quality, health, safety and environment challenges confronting the economy and we feel that holding it here would help address, and proffer solutions to these challenges, thereby impacting on socioeconomic activities in Nigeria and by extension West Africa.”

The 2013 WASHEQ conference held under the theme “Avoid Being in The Line of Fire,” with active participation from relevant stakeholders including the Federal Road Safety Commission, representatives of the Lagos State government and leading corporate bodies in West Africa.

The WASHEQ is an initiative of a Ghanaian non-profit organisation, SHEQ Foundation with the first two conferences held in Ghana in 2011 and 2012.
