OHS training  For Corrections

The Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) is strengthening its Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) standards in all its 13 institutions around the country.

On Monday, 32 officers of the FCS started their three-day workshop on “Workplace Health Environment”, at the Suva Corrections Centre.

In opening the workshop, Deputy Commissioner of Corrections Akuila Namakadre told the participants that they would be the ones to oversee all OHS issues in their respective units.

“It is imperative that you work with your management in order to address OHS issues on the work environment your fellow officers, as well as inmates and visitors are exposed to,” Mr Namakadre said.

“The safety of the workplace is paramount especially as we look after inmates. We need to have all the OHS issues ironed out so that all officers and inmates are protected at all times.”

The workshop which is being facilitated by the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations will run for four weeks with different officers participating every week.

OHS representatives in the Western and Northern Divisions will also be undertaking the OHS training.
