Congratulations to JARIC for a well-organized event

EDITOR: Permit me to use this medium to congratulate JARIC for hosting the Occupational Safety and Health Breakfast to mark World Safety and Health Day. This is commendable and is a step in the right direction. I was amazed at the enormous turnout, although there was a cost attached and this speaks volumes of the awareness of employers about their obligation for safety and health at the work place.

I also wish to commend the Government for taking steps to pass the legislation. Every speaker referred to this.

The entire programme was good and all the speakers did well, although some read too much. I like the presentations by Elroy Boucher of the Teachers’ Union, Mr Kipps of JARIC, and of course the orator, the Honourable Camillo Gonsalves, Minister of Labour. However, the presentation by Dr Mineva Glasgow was really inspiring and impressive.

It’s a pity that we in St Vincent take our own people for granted. Every time I hear Dr Glasgow, I am impressed. She is as good as any and better than many. Let us not allow her skill and talent to go to waste.

An ardent supporter of OHS
