The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has organized a three-day training program for highway sweepers’ supervisors in the state, to equip them with basic health and safety skills needed for optimal performance and safety at work.
According to the managing director of the agency, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, LAWMA was totally committed to ensuring good welfare and safety of highway sweepers, working relentlessly to ensure that every nook and cranny of the metropolis was cleaned up.

He urged the participants to imbibe the culture of safety consciousness in the course of their duties, stressing that most work-related accidents were caused by ignorance and carelessness.
