The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has announced a three-day health, safety and environment training for its technical and safety champion staff across its franchise area.

According to the Management, the refresher training is to improve the overall safety of staff, third party as well as safeguarding KEDCO installations, while enhancing KEDCO’s operational structure.

The training which centres on discussion on immediate and root causes of recent accidents with recommendations to avoid future occurrence, electrical safety and other hazards analysis, is based on the job roles as well as how to address the peculiarities in risk exposures.

In the course of the training, presentations on the new HSE structure, HSE policy, Performance review, HSE Guidelines and updates on NEMSA and NERC were made to keep staff abreast with the current demands of safety as it concerns power distribution.

According to the Management, the training also considered environment-focused safety rules with regard to safeguarding and protection of lives and properties in a very difficult environment where violation of Right of Way and other encroachment on our installations is on the increase.
