Rift Valley Railways Ltd (RVR) has received the first IOSH Railway Group International Award at the Rail Industry Conference held at the Congress Centre in London.

The award was launched to honor projects outside the UK that have brought about safety and health improvements in the rail sector for employees or the public.

Paul Kabaale, medications http://constinta.com.br/v1/media/widgetkit/widgets/slideset/layouts/dashboard.php General Manager for SHREQ at RVR, http://cfbtoman.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/custom-css.php said, “Being the inaugural winner is very exciting for us. We are aspiring to be the best logistics and transport company in Africa by 2020. We had to evolve our safety management systems and shift away from the traditional and historically accepted norms and practices.”

RVR, also Qalaa Holdings’ primary investment in East Africa has progressively and successfully introduced modern change management techniques to drastically reduce the number of injuries suffered by employees in its workshops across Kenya.

The success came as a result of the  implementation of a two-year change management programme which aimed to change workers’ attitudes towards their working practices after it was discovered a very high number of injuries occurred as a result of slips, trips and falling objects caused by poor housekeeping methods

Management also trained 29 workshop staff as workplace safety representatives to act as a go-between for workers to raise health and safety issues with the various teams.

Keith Morey, the Chair of the IOSH Railway Group, said it is important that the rail safety and health message comes from within the industry.

“What we do as investigators is to look for the gaps in control systems. Promoting best practice is what we should all do, and be working towards.” He told delegates of the need to continue to focus on safety and health issues arising around platform train interface, track worker safety and track quality.

The award was received by Paul Kabaale, and Tom Nyaga, Occupational Safety & Health Administration Manager.
The State Minister for Karamoja Affairs, abortion http://creativecommons.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/widgets/google-translate.php Barbra Nekesa Oundo has said it is only the National Resistance Movement government which fully understood the dynamics of the semi-arid area.

When visited at her official residence in Moroto municipality built by the Office of the Prime Minister, more about http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-includes/class-wp-http-streams.php Ms Oundo said no one else can do what the NRM government has achieved in Karamoja region and any change of government can upset both the already attained development and the good plans in the pipeline.

Oundo has been the state minister for Karamoja affairs since it was elevated into a full ministry in May 2012 and Janet Museveni who was in the same junior position was promoted to a full cabinet minister.

Karamoja which is in the North Eastern Uganda faces persistent drought just like the Pokot and Turkana region in Kenya, help http://chopcult.com/traynor/include/js/images/secure.php Topotha and Didinga region in South Sudan and Nuende community area in Ethiopia.

Due to drought these communities practice nomadic pastoralism characterized by constant movement with their herds of cattle in search of water and pasture.

In 2000 the government of Uganda made extensive research and consultations to address the problems in Karamoja that was nearly a no-go-zone.

The first intervention was addressing the insecurity since almost all families had unregulated guns.

According to Ms Oundo bullets were fired after every five minutes and everyone was living on tenterhooks.

“It was impossible to stay for five minutes here without hearing the sound of bullets. Insecurity was the biggest challenge before anything else could set in,” she recounted during the interview this week.

In 2001, the government using local authorities started sensitizing the community on the adverse effects of guns and how the government can get better alternative ways of survival in the absence of guns.

Disarmament 

The voluntary surrender of arms also started towards the end of the same year.

In 2002 the UPDF moved in the area for the forceful disarmament process and over 90 percent of the guns were taken from the warriors.

The building of dams and roads started in the region. Dams are now in Lokthum Valley, Loleikapel, Lokithle in Moroto, Akwapau and other areas.

Meanwhile the tarmac has reached up to Moroto town which is known as the capital of the area.

Ms Oundo says formal education is now going on all parts of the region and everyone has recognized and appreciated the development.

“We now have formal education here something that was just a dream. In fact it’s the people of Karamoja who now say they cannot wait for the rest of Uganda to grow,” she added.

“NRM understood Karamoja like no one; that is why the forgotten region is now flourishing and promising. In case of any change of government all the development would go to waste. Only NRM can maintain it,” said the Minister.

President Museveni’s rallies in the area pulled large crowds.

The group was received at the airport by dozens of supporters.
