“Engagements such as this are crucial to laying proper foundation for raising children that are well informed on HSE, thereby contributing to not only quality education but also good health and wellbeing as well as the betterment of the society at large,” he said.

During the session coordinated by EKEDC’s OHSE consultant, Ampak Nigeria Limited, the Chief Audit and Compliance Officer of EKEDC, Sheri Adegbenro, reiterated the Disco’s commitment to the SDGs and the education of the young minds on HSE.

She expressed delight over the ‘Safeguarding Young Minds for a Smart Tomorrow’ programme and the immense benefits of the programme to the children.

She also stressed the importance of good health and wellbeing in raising smart, properly educated and well-grounded children.

According to the statement, the engagement comprised four main sessions including teachings on basic HSE signs and symbols, elementary first aid and CPR, environmental awareness and fire safety as well as practical demonstrations of lessons learnt during the sessions.
