On the spot labour information, steps to start a friendly society, one on one interaction with employers and employees on Occupational and Safety and Health laws, one stop registration of job seekers on the National Job Bank and guidelines to pursue Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) prorammes, through the Board of Industrial Training were just some of the services offered at the Labour Ministry booth at the country’s grand building expo.
The event commenced on Friday, July 22 to Sunday, July 24, saw an extension to Tuesday, July 26, 2022, with the aim to properly reach out to citizens across Guyana.
Even though, the labour ministry and BIT does not primarily focus on infrastructure and housing, hundreds of citizens, annually become beneficiaries to vocational and technical courses that can contribute positively to the housing sector. Further, other factors such as, labour, occupational safety and health, coop’s societies and recruitment are crucial information that members of the public cannot be deprived.
As the expo ends today, the Ministry of Labour booth positively engaged and served members of the public who were educated and given information that will better their lives, whether in the community, business sector or in the workplace.
A similar exercise was carried out by the ministry’s team at the International Energy Conference and Expo held in February 2022.
