DO NOT ALLOW the “culture of recklessness” being seen on Barbados’ roads to find its way into the workplace to jeopardise occupational safety, warns Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer.

She said there was a need to instil a culture of safety and a respect for one’s own well-being.

“If we don’t respect our own well-being, it is going to be difficult in the workplace to promote a culture where each of us takes responsibility for the well-being of others,” she said in an address as Barbados joined in yesterday’s observance of the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) World Day For Safety And Health At Work.
