Safety & Health in Ghana...

Author: Atta Posted: 2010-11-22 06:30:41
There are people with knowledge in Ghana, all they need is the push and the resources to get the work done. We don't need expats to come and teach us Occupational Safety & Health before we do it. Lets learn from this and just do it. Wake up Ghana!!!!!! Listen to the young ones and get some value added knowledge.....

spoken to the occupational health MD in charge since K4's regime My partner has tried very hard to get a job with GHANA MEDICAL SCHOOL,all this lady doctor could say was to give her our proposal we refused. Since then we have been tossed all over the place. She wanted to take our proposal and run wuith it. I will contact you off this forum. We were referred to her after she attended and represented Ghana at a conference in Bennin around 2007 all emails were not answered till we met her in 2009.

Academic Interest in EHS in Ghana

Author: Samuel A. Oyewole, Ph.D. Posted: 2010-11-22 22:42:22
As an Environmental Health and Safety Engineering Professor in the United States with a special interest in Africa, I believe there is a huge need to spread the EHS news in sub-Saharan West Africa. A lot of work is needed to achieve this objective. I will work with some EHS professionals in the next couple of months to compile the necessary information on the current EHS status of the major ECOWAS countries.

Safety Programs

An excellent review of the situation and very insightful recommendations. I also believe we continue to embark on strong private initiatives to even bring the rights of employee safety to the employees themselves so they can individually advocate in their workplaces. The mining, oil & gas industry has been lucky because of some few 'Safety Advocates' who selflessly have promoted workplace safety even to the discomfort of their own colleagues and corporate leaders. Whilst we have these 'Advocates' pushing the systems and standards, we surely will be finding safety requirements in job descriptions, contractual requirements and contractual evaluation criterias.

THere is no National HSE Policy

This is a very brilliant article on this very important issue. But will the polical managers of this nation read it and learn. Ghana, we never learn to solve problems that confront us. We think even the numorous road crashes are the works of devilish spirits.

Safety in our workplace

In fact as I read your article and after going through the net to source information to Ghana's HSE policy I found nothing in that respest and it's amazing seeing a lot of companies in Ghana without recourse to HSE system in place to their workforce leaving their workers in work related injuries.
On this note I want to add my voice to many who support the HSE Policy in Ghana to speed up the process

good oos

Occupational & Industrial Safety & Healt

Well done, my friend Joe Steve. In establishing a national OSH for Ghana, the idea is not to re-invent the wheel but harmonize and synergize the scattered policies. I will agree with your suggestion of dialogue amongst stake holders. However, this is business for everybody. How then can we leave out some. Consider the extreme case of teachers who are attacked by some recalcitrant parents for discipline (not punishment) of their wards at the full view of school children, what protection do they have under the current scattered level of OSH policies? There's nothing for them. So, we may rather have to scout around for the likes of ILO-OSH 2001, the Robens Committee Report of 1972 and its subsequent Health and Safety at Work etc Act of 1974, requiring specific expertise to handle. Let's see what we the young ones can put together soon.

This is superb! Somehow, the journey has to start somewhere and someday. Your article has provided a strong trigger. Just hope the relevant institutions and persons will give its content an honest reflection.

H&S Research

Author: Nurudeen Posted: 2014-04-13 06:51:25
it will interest you to know that not much of research has been done on this topic in Ghana especially narrowing down to small scale businesses like the printing industry. Getting a documented information on health and safety is a herculean task since people who get injured in the our industries do not most of time report them. i need a list of documented case in the printing so far health and safety is concern.
