The Academy is an intensive and highly impactful empowerment initiative developed as part of the company’s long term sustainable knowledge and expertise transfer program designed to empower passionate and dedicated staff who have indicated interest in becoming Safety Ambassadors for the company.

He said, “As a forward-thinking and innovative organization, Ikeja Electric is building a sustainable HSE programme that is first of its kind in the sector. These trainees will add the robust Health, Safety and Environment knowledge to their in-depth understanding of the power sector. The 50 staff will become safety ambassadors for the company.

“The advantage this offers is that in case of any incidence these well-trained individuals can assist or even prevent the incidence from happening. The classes are interesting and the graduates at the end of the training will have certificates from Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the largest HSE body in Europe; another certification from the Lagos State Safety Commission, the regulator body for safety in Lagos State in addition to the certificate from Ikeja Electric,” he noted.

The Academy will leverage on the experience of accomplished Safety and subject matter experts such as Engr. Kayode Fowode, the first black man appointed into the Council of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Dapo Omolade, CEO of Hybrid Group, a leading HSE Consulting Firm in Africa, Dare Akinfosile, the Divisional Training Adviser, Nigerian Red Cross Society, Hassan B.
