$5.4million allocation for OHS operations

CHINA Railway First Group will spend part of its $5.4million allocation for occupational health and safety operations on its Lomaloma trans-insular road project site.

Company spokesman Donald Singh said their contractual percentage for OHS was usually 1 per cent.

"However, we are by no means restricted by this percentage and we would not have any qualms about spending more for the sake of public safety," he said.

Company OHS manager Sikeli Wise said the money would be diverted towards mitigating the New Zealand safety traffic management system (STMS).

Mr Wise said they were working closely with Montgomery Watson Hauser to upgrade the company's STMS.

"Any construction site should be respected because the safety standards have been laid down to protect the workers and people at the work site," said Mr Wise.

Me Singh said :"In this regards we have also begun working closely with the traffic department in the police force to maintain standard speed limits at our work sites.

"We are appealing to members of the public to have patience as our work will interrupt traffic at times but the road construction is important so that the condition of the road can be improved."
