Access Bank Boss Seeks Workplace Security


The Managing Director of Access Bank Plc, Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede has called on businesses to initiate and implement policies that would guarantee all levels of security at the workplace.



According to a statement by the bank,  Aig-Imoukhuede, spoke at a two- day workshop on workplace policies for small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) in Lagos recently. He said security at the workplace should touch on a number of areas including the protection of the right of workers, ensuring workers operate under good health environment and that the workplace  environment is totally safe.



On the health of workers, the bank chief noted that pandemics are no longer seen as health problems but as part of a broader development crisis, stressing that there is need for firms to protect their staff living with HIV/AIDS.



According to him, “the social and economic consequences of these diseases are staggering as they undermine countries’ productivity capacities, perpetuate poverty, exacerbate social problems, overwhelm health services, weaken the work force of the private sector and threaten national security.”



The chief executive officer of Friends of the Global Fund Africa (Friends Africa), an advocacy and fundraising organization, Akudo Anyawu Ikemba,  said there is the need to institutionalize workplace policies to ensure that sufferers are not discriminated against and that valuable manpower time is not lost to sick-leaves.



The workshop, which was sponsored by Access Bank Plc was with the objective to train 84 small and medium scale companies in the south-west region of Nigeria to enable them initiate proper workplace policies as well as protect their staff living with HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and malaria.
