One of Imperial Tobacco’s businesses in Ivory Coast has won two occupational health and safety awards in a government-run employee well-being competition.

The 3I printing facility in Abidjan, which supplies eight of Imperial’s factories in Central and West Africa, was judged to have the best working conditions in the country.

3I was recognised also in the safety at work category following the implementation of group-wide health and safety standards.

The criteria for the awards included the level of risk assessment carried out by companies and the training provided for employees to ensure greater awareness of health and safety issues.

“We’re very proud to have received this recognition,” said Parfait Effohi, 3I’s operations manager. “This will encourage us to continue our efforts to achieve our main goal of zero accidents.

“These awards confirm the ability of the 3I team to implement and maintain the Group Health and Safety policy in the workplace by taking the necessary preventive actions.”
