Feedback on our Summer Cooler Initiative

Posted at November 3, 2014 | By : | Categories : Care for Employees,Latest News,Northern Region | Comments Off

Many Thorburn Security Solutions Security Officers are exposed to extreme heat conditions especially in mining, industrial and plant or smelter operations at this time of the year.  This year the initiative is to encourage our personnel to drink enough water, keep their food cool and to reduce body temperature.

As part of our Summer Cooler project, all Thorburn Security Officers were issued with cooler bags, water was issued to employees in the Northern Cape and in certain areas mobile Supervisors are equipped with cooler bags to assist staff with ice or cold water.

The idea is to create awareness about the dangers of dehydration and how to minimize the risk.  This campaign also forms part of the safety talks during parades.

There was eagerness and gratitude from the Security Officers on receipt of their cooler bags and water.
