The award is part of the ABF Sugar Safety Recognition Programme introduced to encourage and recognize excellent safety behaviour and performance of employees, teams, and operations across its businesses worldwide.

The annual celebrations are being organised by the Ministry of Labour and Social Securities and supported by partners.

Last November, the Company Managing Director, and Sugar Company were recognised for safety leadership on the continent at the AfriSAFE conference held in Lagos, Nigeria.

This resulted in the selection of Livingstone, Zambia as this year’s venue for the hosting of the 2024 AfriSAFE Congress scheduled for 7-8 November, 2024, the first to occur out of Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Zambia Sugar Plc held its Safety Week from 15th to 19th April, 2024, with interactions among its over 7, 200 employees.

The week-long event was convened under the theme “Safety First, Quality always and Environmental Vigilance.”

Some of the activities that characterised the Nakambala Estate included drama and exhibitions, with employees renewing their commitment to zero harm.
