Director of Federated Employers Mutual Assurance Company said “At FEM we continue to hold dear our focus on construction health and safety as we strive for Zero Harm in the workplace and on construction sites – to ensure that all employees return home safely every day.

I have recently spent time with widows and dependants and it is heart rending to to see kids who are too young to understand the loss of a parent. Looking beyond the statistics at such immeasurable loss is frightening.”

Manyonga congratulated all participants and winners in the National Safety Competition for their outstanding achievements and their significant contribution to Zero Harm in the construction industry.
