He added that the commission had carried out a risk assessment and unscheduled safety inspections of construction sites to ensure safety compliance, as well as adherence to COVID-19 rules to prevent accidents and loss of lives.

According to him, enforcement action was carried out in 609 construction sites for repeated failure to comply with safety regulations.

“The idea is to provide a comprehensive strategic framework and policy direction for Occupational Safety and Health in Lagos State.

 

“This will further protect the state’s most valuable resource and asset (its human capital) by building a safer and healthier Lagos through the development and sustenance of safe and healthy work culture,” Mojola said.
