Murara Plants wins DOSH Awards
Murara Plants, subsidiary of HilverdaFlorist, won the annual DOSH Awards in the Agricultural sector in Kenya. The DOSH Awards is an annual event organised by the Ministry of Labour under the Directorate of Occupational Health and Safety.
This year’s theme was ‘A safe and healthy working environment is a fundamental principle and right at work’. In order to embrace a future of work that prioritizes human needs and adapts to the constantly evolving world, it is imperative to recognize that occupational safety and health (OSH) can no longer be viewed as an optional extra.
