On Thursday May 19 we celebrated International Safety Day. A program was prepared in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Water and Energy Office, 5 flower farms (Sher Ethiopia, Ziway Roses, AQ roses, Herburg Roses and Braam Roses) and the neighboring Soda ash company. All 100 participants joined a field visit at Ziway Rose and a panel discussion at the Sher Clubhouse. The theme ‘Act together to build a positive health and safety culture’, resulted in a lively discussion.
In the morning, the field visit started with a tour in town and on the compound creating awareness amongst the flower farm workers on health and safety matters. At the closing ceremony several awards and certificates were handed out. The meeting ended with a blessing by the elders and a joint lunch.
We thank our Health and Safety committee members for their continuous efforts on this important topic. Acting together and taking ownership will make our farms and community a saver place.
