UCPS Employees Learn First Aid

Eight employees from United Concrete Products Seychelles (UCPS) were awarded with First Aid certificates last week. All eight First Aiders were under the tutelage of First Aid training coordinator Sandra Sabury of the Red Cross Society of Seychelles and sat an exam at the end, where they all passed with a Distinction.

The ceremony was held in the UCPS conference room at Anse des Genets, whilst the chairman Joseph Albert and general manager (GM) Gregory Albert looked on. Also in attendance were Ms. Sabury and the assistant human resources manager (AHRM), Kevin Perine.

Mr. Perine noted at the event that this group was the first cohort to undergo first aid training. He said that the company “would like to continue empowering our staff with the right skills needed, and first aid training is one that is very important. Due to the nature of the business in case of any casualty, we now have qualified first aiders in house that can assist."

The GM, who expressed his full support for the training programme, revealed that a second cohort would soon undergo the same programme, which is organised in partnership with the Red Cross Society of Seychelles. “It is primordial to give your employees different opportunities,” he said observing that “the First Aid training will not only be beneficial for the company, but the skills acquired can be useful in the employees' everyday life.'

Landing Craft Spirit of Ton Joe

Gregory Albert, the General Manager of UCPS said, the problem with Marine Transport is that it was not always available and with so many developments happening on the other islands
UCPS felt it should put the measures in place to ensure the consistency and availability of its products.

With the purchase of our own landing craft we able to pass on the benefits by offering the UCPS Cement and Crusher Products to individuals on Praslin and La Digue for the same price as on Mahe also we have re-adjusted the transport costs for our products to La Digue.

The addition of the landing craft is a milestone for the development of the Seychelles that opens up delivery routes and interconnects the islands for the building industry.

The new landing craft with a 350 ton bunk cargo capacity is named “Spirit of Ton Joe” after the UCPS Founder and Chairman Mr Joe Albert - He said: “I want to leave something to connect the three islands – Mahe, Praslin and La Digue – after my departure. What better thing to leave but our spirit.”
