Workplace health and safety key focus of new partnership
Local oil and gas advisory company MBW Energy Support Services has partnered with international company JNWL Consultancy and Training to provide comprehensive services to the local oil and gas industry.
Generally, the two companies will be working in tandem to provide “flexible” Health, Safety and Environment consultancy services to companies in Guyana. The construction, manufacturing and oil and gas services are the sectors currently focused on but there is scope to expand further.
This partnership was made public on Tuesday during a webinar organised by MBW Energy Support Services. This local company is headed by local entrepreneur Abbigale Loncke.
“MBW and JNWL have combined forces in Guyana to provide a comprehensive list of services for the emerging energy industry,” said Shawn Lafleur, Country Manager for Canada and the Caribbean of JNWAL Consultancy and Training.
Already, the two companies have introduced a novel e-learning management system geared at ensuring that employees have the essential skills and competencies to do their jobs.
This system, developed in partnership with the Georgetown American University, is also custom-built to suit an organization’s needs coupled with an extensive online and mobile training library.
Loncke, in an invited comment on Tuesday, said that the partnership between the two companies is a promising one, able to advance the quality of services within organisations that are part of Guyana’s local business sector.
