ASSP’s Pakistan Chapter recently met with Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to provide professional support for the improvement of OSH performance on existing and upcoming projects.
WAPDA is one of the largest public-sector entities in Pakistan that has been operating for more than 60 years without a proper OSH department and management system in place. During the meeting, the WAPDA team agreed to start collaborating with ASSP on OSH issues. The groups will work to establish an OSH department and developing an OSH management system for the organization.
The Pakistan Chapter has been advancing the safety profession in Pakistan from meeting with the National Vocational Technical Training Commission to meeting with the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Both meetings concerned safety matters and furthering OSH training and legislature.
