Health and safety of the workforce in institutions are critical just as the productivity and sustainability of these institutions.

Due to this, the Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU) is calling on institutions as a matter of urgency to put in measures to ensure the safety of workers in the discharge of their duties.

Speaking at a meeting, ahead of the 2018 May Day Celebration, Deputy General Secretary of the ICU, Morgan Ayawine, said the rate at which injuries and fatalities occur at the workplace is alarming and something concrete needs to be done to halt it.
