As part of its renewed efforts to ensuring accident-free electricity supply to its customers, Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has taken its Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) sensitisation policy to parts of Minna, Niger State.

The company’s Executive Director, Regulatory and Stakeholders Affairs, Engr. Abimbola Odubiyi, who spoke at the awareness crusade event held in its Business Unit, opposite the U. K. Bello Arts Theatre, in the state capital, said the campaign became necessary to check avoidable accidents.

He said:  “As the company strives to improve on services to appreciable level, Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) policy is fully integrated into our operations such that it has a committee at the highest level of the board”

“It is not just about selling electricity and making money, Odubiyi pointed out, adding that part of safety concerns entails informing numerous consumers without whom the AEDC cannot exist about their safety and that of their properties, particularly avoidable deaths,” he added.

The AEDC, he continued, values the wellbeing of its customers, as a result of which “we take it as our prime responsibility to ensure that we educate all customers and stakeholders on the safe handling of electricity and its components”.
