Lagos restates commitment to safe work environments

Lagos State government has reiterated its commitment to creating and sustaining a safe environment for the benefit of workers.

It aims to create a culture of safety through the continuous constructive engagement of stakeholders.

Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC) Lanre Mojola stated this at the 2022 Lagos State Occupational Safety and Health Conference, with the theme: ‘Let’s Act Together to Build a Positive Safety and Health Culture’.

According to Majola, the government has consistently demonstrated its commitment to the safety and well-being of workers by providing the necessary funds and support to ensure that the commission joins the rest of the world in marking the event.

He said: “It is only when stakeholders are carried along in the development of Safety Management Systems that they can effectively connect with such policy documents.

“This is why the LSSC has been at the forefront of constructively engaging MDAs, professional bodies, and other non-governmental organizations to ensure that a culture of safety is created across the state.

Majola stressed that creating a safe and healthy work environment can only be achieved through effective dialogue and active participation in the development, formulation, and revision of occupational safety and health frameworks, policies, and strategies.
