“How would you feel if I told you that some of your employees are not as safe as others? Disturbingly, PNG workplaces are often more unsafe for female employees than for male employees. As a business leader, ‘safety equity’ for my staff is critical, irrespective of whether they are located in Port Moresby or the most remote operation. I also know that safe workplaces are critical to attracting and retaining the very best staff, many of who are women.”
