We rely on our health care workers for our health but often do not consider their safety.”He pointed out that HCWs were exposed to even more occupational hazards than agricultural, construction and factory workers.Dr George Mitchell, a Ministry of Health official and graduate of SGU’s Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, represented Senator Ann Peters, Grenada’s Minister of Health, who was out of the island.Mitchell commented: “We are ever conscious that a healthy, uninjured workforce is vital to our country’s well-being.”He urged participants to find ways to implement what they learnt in the workshop.Among topics to be covered at the workshop are the risk of occupational transmission of blood-borne pathogens, management of these risks, measures to be taken after exposure, how to conduct workplace assessment and how to carry out a rapid assessment for blood-borne pathogens.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

first_imgLoftus Emmanuel. Photo credit: Alex BrunoLocal music promoter, businessman and event organizer Loftus Emmanuel has died.“Lofty” as he was affectionately called and known passed away at the country’s main hospital on Wednesday, after complications with diabetes.Emmanuel who died at the age of sixty-five (65) will be remembered by Media-Communications Specialist and Cultural Activist Alexander “Alex” Bruno as a “cultural giant”.Bruno expressed tremendous sadness at the passing of Emmanuel whom he said has never received the praises due to him for his achievements.“The praises that Lofty should have been given for the work he has done was passed on to other people at different times in his career. I hope now in his passing we can re-visit his life and pay homage to him and give him the kind of respect that he deserved and give him a send off fitting for a cultural giant”.Bruno hopes that “Lofty” will be given an appropriate send off one which is “fitting” for “a gentle cultural giant”.He also noted that within the space of two days, Dominica has lost two citizens who have made very significant contributions to the nation’s development.“I hope that we can have a lull in terms of the departure of people who have contributed a lot to Dominica; we’re still mourning the loss of Mr. Maynard now Lofty right on the heels of Mr Maynard. So how much more can a nation bear in terms of the losses that we have had”.He further calls on young people to “step up to the plate” in taking up the mantel in promoting Dominica’s culture. Bruno laments that there will never be a “duplication of Lofty he was just one of a kind”.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!
