March is health and safety month at St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited. The theme for this year’s observance is “Health + Safety + Wellness = Wealth”. During the month, team members are trained in how best to execute their jobs safely. Sessions also focus on mental, spiritual and emotional health to ensure overall employee wellness.
St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) has one hundred and seventy-three male team members.
They are the overwhelming majority at the electric utility.
It was to them Fr Ignatius Cetoute spoke, urging care of their emotional health.
The Catholic priest was the featured speaker at the launch of the annual LUCELEC Health and Safety Month in March.
This is the 23rd year LUCELEC will train staff in the best health and safety practices.
What began as a weeklong commitment is now one month long.
The focus has also broadened from sessions on health and safety to emotional, mental and even spiritual wellness.
The annual event is now referred to as, “Health, Safety, Environment and Fire Awareness” month.
LUCELEC broadened its scope as CARILEC, the regional utility organization the company is a founding member of – urged renewed safety commitment among its members.
It is just one reason LUCELEC’s Managing Director Trevor Louisy challenged team members to constantly keep safety at the forefront of all their work.
Sessions for Health and Safety Month continue at all LUCELEC locations throughout the month of March. The theme for this year’s observance is “Health + Safety + Wellness = Wealth. Is your Equation Balanced?”
