CEO Health and Safety: Standing In The Fight Against Covid-19

In light of the recent global pandemic CEO Health and Safety Consultants has taken the initiative to embark on several projects in collaboration with the Ministry of Health facilities, and the regional health authorities to conduct N-95 mask fitting exercises to help prepare our health care workers in the fight against COVID-19. Since the first confirmed case in Jamaica in March to date, we have conducted almost 3000 respirator fit tests in various areas of the health sector for the island’s doctors, nurses, porters, ambulance drivers, and other healthcare workers. We are committed to playing our part in the effort to reduce and control the spread of the virus throughout the island and we will diligently continue to assist wherever and however we can to ensure the safety and health of our fellow citizens.
