Lowe: Get on with the job!
While saying that he was ready to defend his workers, Minister of the Environment and Drainage Dr Denis Lowe has warned them against wasting time on the job.
He has cautioned them against using the excuse that there were no tools to effectively do the job, because during his inspection of the storeroom he was pleasantly surprised that there was an adequate supply of safety materials and tools needed to get the job done.
Speaking at the Drainage Division Presentation of 2012 Personnel Awards yesterday, at the ministry’s Musson Building, Hincks Street office, Lowe said the findings of his inspection, were a pleasant surprise.
“The reason why that discovery was so pleasant is because from time to time I run into workers and when I ask them why are you not working, they say: ‘We don’t have tools’. And I say: ‘Oh, and why not?’ I know that we allocate monies for tools and supplies to be in place.
“So just be notified that in the future when I see you out there taking a break and it’s not break time and I ask you why, don’t tell me that there are no tools available, because there are tools available,” he said. (AH)
