AWARENESS TRAINING ON AMMONIA CONDUCTED

As Seychelles commemorates Safety Week, staff of the Seychelles Breweries, partners of the company and other concerned organisations have learnt more about the ammonia gas and security measures needed when handling such a dangerous substance through a one-day training session.

The training was organised by the Seychelles Breweries Limited following the ammonia leakage incident that happened at the company in April this year. The Supply Chain Director at the Seychelles Breweries, Devon Francis said a meeting with stakeholders after the incident indicated a general lack of awareness of ammonia in the Seychelles. “We took an action that we were going to have an independent expert that was going to take us through an assessment of our system and that a part of that would include general awareness training for all the stakeholders.”

The training was conducted by an expert in ammonia gas, Mr. Tim Jones. He said that the most important component of the training was safety. “What I want to do is to make sure that everybody goes away with some understanding of ammonia, its hazards and what we need to do to take care of ourselves, to take care of our equipment.”

GOVERNMENT REVEALS EXPENDITURES ON COMMONWEALTH GAMES

The government through the National Sports Council spent just over 400 061 Rupees towards the participation of athletes in the Commonwealth Games which was held in Glasgow, Scotland at the end of July.

This statement was made by the Minister for Social Affairs, Community Development and Sports, Vincent Meriton while answering questions in the National Assembly. Minister Meriton said in addition, the government spent about 1 million rupees to prepare the athletes for the Commonwealth Games.

Normally international games like the Commonwealth are financed by the committee of the Seychelles Olympics and Commonwealth Games Association. Minister Meriton added that the National Sports Council for its part normally finances training camps for athletes in preparation for the games.

PRESIDENT MICHEL REITERATES THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

President James Michel made a plea on behalf of all islanders for world leaders to take decisive action to reach an agreement to halt climate change.

He was talking during the United Nations Summit on climate change in New York on Wednesday 24th September when he asked them not to ignore the truth about climate change.

President Michel made it clear that it is time for action and not just for speeches. The Seychelles government leader put more emphasis on his statement made in Samoa recently when he had called climate change a crime against humanity. He said that islands are taking up the challenge to build their resilience and finding innovative ways to tackle their uncertain situation.

President Michel called for the Paris Agreement in 2015 to be a protocol under the United Nations framework convention on climate change and said that it must be an ambitious and legally binding agreement that is applicable to all and must be adopted within the shortest possible time frame.

LUNGOS INFORMS OF ITS TRANSITION TO CEPS

The Liaison Unit of Non-Governmental Organisation of Seychelles will change its name to be called Citizens Engagement Platform Seychelles as of the 8th of November this year.

From that date, all Non Governmental Organisations will be referred to as Civil Society Organisations. To inform the media of the change, the Liaison Unit of Non-Governmental Organisation of Seychelles held a meeting for representatives of media houses in the country on Tuesday 23rd August.

The Chairperson of LUNGOS, Mrs. Marie-Nella Azemia says the change will allow the platform to have members from all non-governmental organisations in the country. “Right now we realize that for citizens to fully engage in the development of the country we need all of them onboard and we need them to be fully educated in the sense that they can participate actively in all meetings nationally and internationally”

She said that at this stage, information sharing is very important especially in terms of voluntary engagement to help the organisation take its rightful place in the society. To this effect, LUNGOS will in the coming days be holding meetings with different organisations to inform them on the transition from LUNGOS to CEPS.
