  1. To many time you see heavy-duty machines on work sight working and workmen alongside them working. On to many jobsight we these things happening. Know safety protocols on most job sight in Antigua 🇦🇬 at all.

  2. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is very important on any and every job site and should always be worn every single time ur on the job site , there should also be At least one safety 🦺 officer as well…. Take a look at every construction site here in antilla you don’t see any PPE being worn, heavy equipments are being operated while workers are not wearing helmets and working next to them…… Even having safety meetings before every job is started is very important it always helps to refreshing everyone’s mind to help them to keep aware of their surroundings… … Antigua locks safety protocols on the jobsite even in the workplace….. There’s only a few companies here that 100% practice the wearing of PPE and safety meetings on a regular just to name two companies layout when one’s based in Antigua and West Indies oil….. We here lock the intelligence of safety in the workplace and the protocols we need to take to keep ourselves protected…… It’s a serious matter even when driving these concrete trucks they are safety measures and protocols that should always be followed that we are not following here in antigua. It’s the responsibility of the employer for these laborers/workers to always be aware of the safety protocols on these job sites daily to execute the job. These employers seem not to be as concerned for their workers safety in our country which is very dangerous and sad…..
