One of the most effective ways to ensure community participation is by using young male and female community volunteers. These volunteers are paid a small allowance as they will be required to work five days a week to ensure that projects are completed on time. However to ensure that these volunteers are able to carry out their work safely, ATprojects has to carry out general work based safety training programs. Also it is very important that we provide all the appropriate safety equipment that will be required by these volunteers. But just providing safety equipment isn’t enough, daily inspections need to be made to make ensure that this equipment is being used and the volunteers know how to work safely. In the picture below volunteers are working on constructing a rainwater catchment and they have been instructed on how to do this in a safe manner. And we are pleased to say that following safety inspections by our client the project at Kabil Village in New Ireland Province has an excellent safety record with no accidents reported to-date. So it looks like the excellent work of a project team leader and his staff in terms of safety training is paying off.
