As an association, saving lives is one of our responsibilities by ensuring safety in homes and workplaces, as COVID-19 pandemic threw many parts of the world into darkness.

In history, such is the most terrible time to think about, so we had to make sure that lives were saved.

We are all making sure things go back to normal; the pandemic has taught us great lessons.

We are working with different organisations and parastatal-agencies to sensitise the public on what safety is all about, he told NAN.

The regional president said that safety rules were part of fundamental rules.

Values and morals that organisations and our parents gave to us when we were growing up are also very important. We also need to find ways to avoid a reoccurrence of the pandemic and hazards, he said.

The regional president promised to work closely with various organisations to promote inclusion of safety rules on sign posts to encourage people to adhere to them.
