Firm to hold dengue workshop

CALLISON Pacific Fiji Limited is organising workshops in its quest to contain the spread of dengue fever in its workplaces.

Company support services manager Suli Matavesi said they have even stopped work for a few days at pine stations they were working in so employees could conduct clean-ups to deter breeding of mosquitoes.

Mr Matavesi said the company had also started spraying for mosquitoes in the Macuata pine forests before they moved to Bua.

"The puncturing of resin bags as a likely breeding place for mosquitoes is an ongoing process," he said.

"All this is done with the concurrence of the health inspector in Seaqaqa.

"Additionally, we have looked into changing the colour of our resin bags from the current black to a transparent one and this is currently under trial on Viti Levu."
