The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) was fumigated and disinfected by Dansworld Services Limited in a bid to kill all viruses and bacteria that might be present in their premises. The fumigation exercise was carried out in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which some staff members at the Head Office tested positive some days ago.
The company originally announced a temporary closure which took effect from Monday, July 6, 2020 and would last until today, Monday, July 13, 2020. In this regard, the company went through extensive fumigation and disinfection exercise by Dansworld Services Limited.
Bernard Ntow Danso, CEO of Dansworld Services, stated that: “Well we understand the importance of BOST in our economy and hence, when we were tasked with the fumigation, we used world class materials, coupled with the solution to undertake this exercise. I can say on authority, that BOST can get back to business after this exercise with no fears of the premises serving as a breeding ground for COVID-19.”
He also indicated that, in response to the pandemic and its exponential cases that we are recording as a country, they have instituted discounted packages for corporate organizations to take advantage of. He made the call for all corporate organizations to contact them to undertake such fumigation and disinfection exercises to kill all bacteria and related viruses from the environment.
In addition, he emphasized that, there is no need for corporate stigmatization as once the fumigation and disinfection takes place, the place is a safe environment but was quick to add that, those who work there must adhere to preventive protocols as they come from various places to the office.
“Not long ago, the CEO of Ghana Employer’s Association, Alex Frimpong, stated that the consequences of corporate stigmatization would be quite huge, but I think such mass scale fumigation exercises would lessen and possibly remove the perceived corporate stigmatization,” he added.
