Assist to waste workers with safety amenities and health camp marking World Health Day

April 2021. The Coca-Cola Foundation and Bottlers Nepal (Terai) Limited jointly supported CREASION Nepal to conduct Occupational Safety Training and Health Camp for waste workers on the occasion of World Health Day 2021. In alignment with the celebration’s theme to ensure a fairer and healthier world, the event was organized for waste workers putting into consideration their vulnerable working conditions. The program included a training session on safety measures during and after work, usage of different safety gear, prevention of occupational accidents at the site, and a session on the use of fire extinguishers and other safety equipment for a safer working condition. Safety gear including protective s/hoes, caps, jackets, masks, and gloves- were also handed over to the waste workers. In view of the sites’ vulnerability to fire accidents and other hazards, each site was also equipped with fire extinguishers and other safety amenities.

The health camp consisted of medical checkups and consultations with the waste workers regarding their health concerns and issues. One of the other major highlights of the event was the handover of labor contracts for the employees of the baling sites. The contract has been provided to help balers formalize working conditions for the benefit of their employees. The event reached out to 67 waste workers in six different bailing sites of Satungal, Teku, Balkumari, and Jorpati.
