The Ghana Institute of Safety and Environmental Professionals (GhISEP) commiserates with the families of victims of the explosion at Apiate near Bogoso in the
Western Region, which occurred on Thursday, January 20th, 2022.
GhISEP applauds all stakeholders who supported rescue efforts for their commitment to reducing the explosion’s impact.
As the foremost Occupational Health and Safety Professional Body, GhISEP has taken a keen interest in the disaster and ongoing commentary on the possible contributory factors.
We wish to caution against any blame, but urge that an independent investigation is carried out to determine the systemic lapses (if any) that may have engineered the disaster.
GhISEP is willing to make its expertise available to help unearth the root cause and proffer needed remedial actions to avert future disasters to help stem the growing trend of similar tragedies while contributing to saving lives properties and protecting the environment.
Once again, our sincere condolences to the distraught families and mourning nation.
GhISEP, promoting Safety and Sustainable Environment.
