The House of Representatives on Wednesday moved to standardise safety and environmental management to foster the country’s more sustainable and socially responsible future.
This followed passage into second reading the Bill for an Act to establish a Chartered Institute and Safety management in Nigeria by the House of Representatives at the plenary
The bill being sponsored by Hon. Robert Aondona Tyough representing Kwande/Ushongo Federal Constituency of Benue State seeks to apart from standardising environmental and safety management, make practitioners in the industry sufficiently equipped to cope with the dynamics of the modern safety world.
Also, when passed into law, the bill will regulate and professionalise the practice of environment and safety management to make the profession attain and maintain international standards.
According to the sponsor, “the bill will develop basic intermediate and advanced skills to upgrade personnel in the field of environment.
“Establish safety nets to assist communities on how to be sustainable and healthy in a competitive world,” it stated.
The sponsor of the bill, Hon. Tyough explained that the establishment of the institute is imperative because it develops, implements environmental, health and safety management systems that can guarantee a better future for the country.
According to the lawmaker, the need to manage cost and limited resources have resulted in a trend to move beyond regulatory compliance to high professionalism.
Specifically, the Green Chamber has intended to maximise the gains of the sector to boost the economy of Nigeria and develop a human resources base for the country, Africa and the world.
