Look beyond our roads. Look around you. There are so many unsafe situations and conditions around us.
As a safety professional, I see so many of such accidents waiting to happen as I walk around.
Gutters missing their slabs around Accra Mall, cracked parts of streets around Adabraka, sometimes in the middle of the street, with a stick stuck in as the only warning, trotros with sharp edges of seats and welded joints protruding, commercial buses without emergency exits and no information on how to exit in emergencies, buildings with no escape routes in emergencies, meeting rooms in big office buildings with single exit points, taxis with LPG smells in them meaning the gas is leaking…
We live in an unsafe country. The entire country requires a safety gap assessment with actions to close the gaps which clearly exist.
In Ghana, we overstretch our allocation of the grace of God.
May the Lord keep us. Keep safe. Blessed weekend.
