The country's top apparel exporter Brandix, a Group that provides direct employment to more than 25,000 people, has lent its might to make occupational health and safety the focus of attention in Sri Lanka this week, to support the National Safety and Health Week campaign of the Ministry of Labour Relations & Manpower.

As Principal Sponsor of this annual event targeting employers and employees alike, Brandix is supporting a series of events organised to create greater awareness on occupational safety and health in work places across the island, and has encouraged its own associates to participate in these activities, a spokesman for the Group said.

Themed 'Health & Safety for Happiness of Life,' the highlights of the campaign are an island-wide poster competition, street dramas that will be enacted at the export processing zones in Biyagama, Katunayake and Avissawella, a Safety Walk at Horana and a National Seminar at the BMICH on Thursday, 9th October.

“Brandix has been at the forefront of efforts to improve safety and health in workplaces,” the Group's Compliance Manager Dhammika Abeygoonawardhane said.

“Our commitment to occupational safety and health has been recognised by many awards at national level, and we are happy to extend this commitment beyond the Group by supporting national campaigns of this nature.”

“It is our hope that wider participation in these events will in time lead to better conditions, processes and practices.

There is no greater asset to a business than a happy employee, and workplace safety and health are key contributing elements to a contented work force,” Mr. Abeygoonawardhane added.

Brandix pioneered the concept of total solutions in the Sri Lankan apparel industry and has been recognized as Sri Lanka's largest apparel exporter by the Export Development Board for the past two years.
