Contractors educated on safeguards
The Environmental Safeguards Specialist (ESS) of GCAP, George Amoasah, has emphasised the need for contractors developing sites for investors in the Nasia-Nabogo Inland Valley to be compliant with environmental safeguards policies of the World Bank.
Mr Amoasah asked the contractors to always be in the right protective personal gears, have safety First Aid kits, manage refuse disposal and keep the environment clean.
He warned against burning on the sites and littering fields with plastic such as empty sachet water and carrier bags. The ESS mentioned that children should not be engaged in work of any kind on the fields.
