THE Ministry of Justice's Occupational, Health and Safety (OHS) teams were clad in reflector jackets and safety helmets while ensuring the safety of their staff during the tsunami evacuations in Suva this week.

According to a government statement, the OHS teams rallied their staff at the Salvation Army Headquarters Hall on Suva's MacGregor Rd.

Also part of the group was Chief Justice Anthony Gates who said he was pleased with his OHS team.

"I'm pleased actually they're all wearing their uniforms, we know who they are, they were concerned about who were in the various groups, that we haven't missed anybody," he said.

The tsunami warning, following an undersea earthquake in the Solomons, was cancelled a few hours after it was first broadcast.
