RusselSmith Nigeria recently launched its Junior Safety Rangers Program, a safety awareness program which aims to teach students the basic principles of health and safety, and encourages them to spread those positive safety values among their peers and families.

The program works by establishing Junior Safety Rangers clubs at various schools who will be periodically trained on the principles of being safety conscious in all they do.

At the launch of the first Junior Safety Rangers club which took place at Chrisland Schools, Victoria Garden City (VGC), Lagos, the students were taught on the ideals of becoming a safety ranger by being safety champions both at home and at school.

At the occasion, Funke Holloway, VP Organizational Performance Management, RusselSmith, noted that “the need to impact safety principles to young minds is important because they need to be safety conscious to circumvent avoidable accidents and mishaps. Safety is very important for survival and should be regularly taught in schools to enable children develop responsible attitudes towards their lives and environment.”

Mrs. Georgenia Azike, Head Teacher, Chrisland Schools, commented that “RusselSmith’s Junior Safety Rangers Program is a good initiative because the students have been taught everyday living tips and safety which is very important to their growth and development, thereby protecting themselves and the environment.”

In over eleven years of its operations, RusselSmith has continually blazed the trail as a leader in safety. One of such achievements is the commendable safety record of 3 million man hours in its operations with zero Loss Time Incidents (LTI). RusselSmith continues to deliver excellent service in its three main business divisions; Aerial Inspection Services, Topside Asset Integrity Management Services and Subsea Asset Integrity Management Services.

 

The program forms part of RusselSmith’s 2017 Safety Week activities of the company which is geared towards creating awareness of health, safety and environment among members of the organization and the immediate community.

    This is a great initiative for young kids in Nigeria considering the fact that they are the most vulnerable when it comes to safety issues. I hope to partner with your organization when my safety book for kids is published soon. Thanks.

    Great thinking, good idea. This is a top up way to imbibe safety in this young stars through academics as they are highly prone to injuries.
    Making rangers out of them brings out the best champion in them in the line of health and safety, and also be more conscious of the activities in their environment.

    Job well-done for this great initiative.
