The NIOH wishes to extend its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of those who lost loved ones in the recent fire at the Bank of Lisbon Building in downtown Johannesburg. We are with them in their sorrow . May their souls rest in peace. Unfortunately this is not an isolated incident – many tragedies keep occurring of workers not coming home to their loved ones due to fatal workplace injuries/accidents. We need to collectively ensure occupational health and safety is taken seriously and given priority within workplaces to prevent the recurrence of such tragedies.
