300 workers clean forest

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, March 18, 2014

ABOUT 300 workers of Callison Pine Pacific Chemicals Limited in Seaqaqa and Bua were stood down from operations in the pine forests for a clean-up campaign yesterday.

The event was part of the company's efforts to contribute to the nation's four-week clean-up campaign against dengue fever.

Company CEO Semi Lotawa yesterday said their employees were tasked with cleaning up their camps, back yards and workplaces before reaching out to the community.

"We have decided to cease all operations today for the purpose of cleaning up and destroying the breeding places of mosquitoes," Mr Lotawa said.

"The other 300 workers in Lololo and Nadi also took part in a clean-up campaign.

"After this, we will evaluate the progress of the event before we reach out to the community."

Apart from their daily work, Mr Lotawa said the event was also part of their social corporate responsibilities.

"Now that dengue fever is epidemic, it's only proper that we partake in such campaigns to destroy mosquito-breeding places in the area.

"We also want to ensure all employees are healthy and free from this mosquito-borne illness."
