The award ceremony was held during a seminar on the theme "Less stress for better health at work", organised by OHSA together with the counterpart Euro- pean agency in the sector. Multigas serves customers in the industrial and healthcare sectors with a complete range of atmos- pheric and special gases, equipment and services. Based in Kirkop, the fa- cility boasts a modern plant and em- bodies all that the company stands for in terms of health and safety con- siderations, customer convenience and environmental responsibilities. At the same time, a close and long- standing collaboration with its stra- tegic international partners rein- forces Multigas's ability to produce, manage and market their range of gases to major clients. During the seminar, Multigas' Health & Safety and Quality Execu- tive Anne Hersey delivered a pres- entation highlighting the innovative contributions towards managing stress and good safety policies and procedures within the company. She said, "Over the years, we have cre- ated a positive health and safety cul- ture by conducting regular activities to ensure good safety practices and alleviate any work related stress." Multigas CEO Ing. Michael Mif- sud said, "At Multigas, we recognise the intrinsic value of our Health & Safety accreditation, as it has funda- mentally guided us towards a better way to conduct our operations. "By promoting positive measures, such as good communication and active participation within the or- ganisation, we do our utmost to channel energies towards achieving common goals, while minimising conflict. Therefore management and employees are both encouraged and pleased to achieve this significant recognition from the OHSA." In the coming weeks Multigas will be participating along with other EU countries with their presentation at European level. Events Paul Abela confirmed as GRTU president Gasan Mamo staff help Fatima House GRTU yesterday held its first Ex- ecutive Council meeting during which Paul Abela was confirmed as GRTU president for this year. Amongst its 18 council members, representing diverse economic operators within the GRTU, the small business chamber is this year welcoming two new members on its executive council, Mr Alfred Fenech of Sterling Jewellers and Mr Christian Vassallo of Vassallo Group. On 18 January the GRTU success- fully held its Annual General Meet- ing during which Paul Abela made an introduction of what this year meant for the small business cham- ber, and that even though 2014 was once again a very challenging year it was also a successful year for the GRTU. In her presentation of the Annual Report GRTU CEO Abigail Psaila Mamo presented an overview of the work undertaken by the GRTU in 2014 and amongst other things explained the important wins the GRTU achieved during the year, especially in this year's Budget in relation to the Eco Tax and Unfair Competition. Members present for the AGM were also given the opportunity to raise any issues and some members expressed their concern on the cur- rent high fuel prices. They empha- sised that coupled with the high licensing fees on commercial vehi- cles, these were heavily decreasing the competitivity of Maltese enter- prises. GasanMamo employees smartened up Fatima House ENTHUSIASTIC staff from GasanMamo Insurance gave up their Saturday morning earlier this month to spruce up the Ursulines sisters Fatima House in Sliema. The team turned up with all the materials needed to give the house a much-needed spring clean. From painting and scrubbing to a spot of gardening, the GasanMamo team left Fatima house spotless and looking as good as new. "As a responsible company, we embraced this day as a special opportunity to join forces and support the com- munity. "By helping out those people who reach out to the poor and little ones such as the Ursuline Sisters at Fa- tima House, we provide tangible support to those who need help in various ways and to improve the quality of life of people facing difficulties," said Julian J. Mamo, Managing Director at GasanMamo Insurance.
