Da-silva, who has been made secretary of the board, added that the move would afford the organisers the opportunity of taking the message of safety a step higher in the society, while showcasing the essence and immense importance of safety at workplace to the nation at large.
He said: “This is the 4th edition of 9jaSAFE Award.
Safety Record newspaper, organisers of the event, decided to inaugurate a governing board of eminent personalities for the award to reflect how far we have gone with our efforts to reposition the brand.
This will ensure the brand lives up to its vision of effectively propagating the message of workplace safety.”
