ENHANCING SAFETY AND SKILLS: TRAINING INITIATIVES AT KARIOBANGI CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE

MSEA Kariobangi Center of Excellence team conducted a machine and workshop safety training for MSEs operating within the Kariobangi Incubation Centre. The training focused on hazard analysis, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements, and the importance of workplace safety. The session aimed to equip MSEs with the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively mitigate workplace hazards. It covered critical areas essential for fostering a culture of safety within the workplace.

The session began with a thorough analysis of the Kariobangi Incubation Centre as a workplace environment. Attendees gained insights into various potential hazards, including sharp tools, machinery, fire, electrical shocks, and chemical exposure. Real-life examples and interactive discussions illustrated the significance of hazard identification and mitigation. A detailed discussion followed regarding the types of PPE essential for different work types within the Kariobangi Incubation Centre, with a focus on gloves and safety goggles for machinery handlers and protective suits and respirators for those working with chemicals. Attendees were informed about tailored PPE to ensure their safety. Officers emphasized the intrinsic link between workplace safety, productivity, and business sustainability.

Through engaging presentations and case studies, MSEs gained a profound understanding of how prioritizing safety enhances overall efficiency and morale. They were reminded of their responsibility in maintaining a safe work environment, actively participating in hazard identification, reporting potential risks promptly, and adhering to safety protocols and regulations.

The Kariobangi Centre of Excellence continues to conduct various trainings tailored to the needs of MSEs, aimed at helping them upgrade and acquire new skills. These initiatives are designed to benefit MSEs by enhancing their capabilities and ultimately increasing their revenue streams.
