During the Safety Awareness Summit at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), the importance of an overall culture of safety was highlighted by IRRI Director General Bob Zeigler, who is also chief of the Risk Management and Quality Assurance (RMQA) team of the institute.
In his welcome address, Zeigler emphasized that safety is central to the entire mission of IRRI. He explained that the future of the institute’s ability to deliver promises and contributions to alleviate poverty and hunger around the world depends on people who must be working in a safe and comfortable environment.
The rest of the topics discussed were fire safety, transport safety, and safety in the field and in the laboratory.
The Safety Awareness Summit: Promoting Safety in the Workplace was held on 2 October 2015, sponsored and organized by IRRI’s RMQA and SSS.
