The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has emerged the overall winner in the 2017 Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) Safety ranking; a remarkable leap from its fifth position in the 2016 NEMSA Safety ranking.

NEMSA is an agency of government responsible for ensuring safety of lives and property in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry.

In a statement made available to News Express via e-mail by EEDC Head, communications Mr Chukwuemeka Ezeh, said the ranking was released by NEMSA in its Disco & TCN Ranking Trend for the year 2017 at the just concluded Monthly Power Sector Meeting held at Mararaba Akunza, Nasarawa State.

According to Ezeh, the year under review, EEDC consistently maintained the first position in eight out of twelve months, adding that it was the passion and conscious effort put in by the Management of the company in ensuring that safety rules are strictly adhered.

The statement further stated that the criteria used for the ranking ranges from, fatalities (that is the number of deaths within the network), major injuries as well as network resolved.

The Acting Managing Director/CEO of EEDC, Mr. Paul Okeke attributed the feat to the commitment and conscious effort made by the Management of EEDC in ensuring strict adherence to safety rules and regulations.

Adding that consistent Public Safety Awareness Campaign it embarked on via interactive radio shows across the South-East states, as well as Town Hall Meetings held in various Local Government Councils to educate and sensitise the general public on the need to be safety conscious.

While commending his staff for the achievements, encouraged them not to rest on their oars, but to work hard in sustaining the attained position.

In his own reaction, the Head, Health, Safety & Environment, EEDC, Engr. Francis Iwu attributed the achievement to the seriousness the organisation has been giving to Safety, and the continuous investment in qualified Safety personnel and equipment.

He appeal to members of the public to be safety conscious and desist from engaging in acts that would put their lives or that of their loved ones at risk.
