MWUN commends Intels’ work environment

The Maritime
Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) on Tuesday said the management of Integrated
Logistic Services Nigeria Ltd., had provided ‘a conducive work environment for
both staff and stakeholders.

The President-General of the
union, Mr Tony Nted, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of
Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
NAN reports that Intels was
established in 1982 at Onne Port Complex and the company has since become a
major participant in the development of the Oil and Gas Free Zone.
Nted said the commendation was an
appreciation of the fact that the management of Intels deemed it fit to
consider its workers’ well-being.
He said that it was not enough for
firms operating seaport terminals to talk about safety and health in theory,
but these should be demonstrated as Intels had shown.
Nted urged other terminal operators
to emulate Intels, adding that a decent work environment showed how a company
valued its workforce.
“People should go to Onne and see
what Intels is doing. The environment is so tidy.
“They sweep and keep the place
tidy, unlike what goes on in some other work environment when we talk about
health and safety in the port.
“In some terminals, workers work
under dehumanising environment which affects their health.
“It will be worthy that other
terminals do exactly what Intels is doing with its work environment to give the
workers a sense of belonging,’’ Nted said.
He said that Intels had shown
commitment to its work environment with proper management of the quay aprons
and ensuring thorough clean-up.
Nted said it was only natural that
workers rarely fell ill when working in a conducive environment, “besides
being motivated on the job’’.
