SAFETY BY CHOICE, NOT BY CHANCE: JIO on board for its first International Safety Week!

October 7 to 11, 2019 marked the first International Safety Week (ISW) for all entities part of VINCI Highways’ network, and JIO was fully on board with the plan to reinforce sensitization of its key local stakeholders of some very important matters under the topic.

A total of six (6) seminars were held between Tuesday October 8 and Thursday October 10 at both the Portmore and Vineyards Toll Plaza Offices. The sessions included the sharing of interactive presentations highlighting the specificity of tolled roads and spirited discussions of various safety elements that must be practiced by all working on or around the Highway 2000 East-West network.

The set of approximately 160 participants included representatives from JIO’s staff and subcontractors, from the JCF/PSTEB, to whom we took the opportunity to present/donate additional safety vests, and also from the Jamaica Fire Brigade, NROCC, Toll Authority, and a few other stakeholders.

At the end of the seminar, those present were issued certificates symbolizing their participation in the safety sessions, and few goodies as a reminder of the slogan… SAFETY BY CHOICE, AND NOT BY CHANCE!
