Tema Shipyard and Dry Dock Company has embarked on its 2018 first quarter health walk to keep its staff physically active.
Musah I. Haruna, Fire & Safety Manager and Chairman of the Safety Committee of the dry dock, went on to explain that “as a company, we have set ourselves to do such physical exercises once in a quarter, to set the tone for our employees to regularly do physical exercises for good health and vitality.”
He said that the staff of the dry dock can effectively contribute their quota to national development only when they are mentally and physically sound.
The Tema Shipyard and Dry Dock Company has seen some turnaround in service delivery since the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority took over the management of the company, and is poised to become the best dry dock in the sub-region, as such the staff need to at all times be physically strong.
“This would lead to increase in productivity and profitability and reduction in our medical bills. Then, we can have enough money to keep our home running better,” Musah Haruna said.
