Tema, Aug. 4, GNA – Mr Bright Wireko-Brobbey,
the Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, has commended Mrs Kate
Quartey-Papafio, Chief Executive Reroy Cables (CEO) for creating jobs for the
teeming Ghanaian youth.

The Deputy Minister said this when he paid a
courtesy call on the CEO of the company to observe with their operations.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency Mr Wireko
Brobbey said one of the thematic areas of government was to grow industry and
ensure that welfare of workers were adequately taken care of by owners of
private companies.

Mr Brobbey said the visit would be extended to
other industries unannounced to inspect and ensure that employers are not
exploiting workers and under paying their employees.

The Deputy Minister urged companies to adhere
to the ILO convention on Occupational Health and Safety, because they were important
laid down processes that many industries in the country failed to observe.

Dr Ankamah Lomotey, Head of Factory
Inspectorate Division Tema District, called on companies who have not renewed
their licenses with the Factory Inspectorate Division and all other relevant
regulatory institutions to promptly do so.

This, he said, was necessary because the
division is embarking on a series of exercises to ensure strict compliance and
any company found guilty would be dealt with.

Mrs Quartey-Papafio urged government to assist
industries with national security protection to help reduce the spate of
robbery and pilfering in the area.

She reiterated her commitment to help support
the agenda of developing industrial parks by using her chain of networks to
create more jobs for the society.

The Deputy Minister was accompanied by
Charlotte Hanson, Head of Public Affairs, Ohene Mensah, Acting Chief Inspector
of Factories, Mr Eugene Kollotey Acting Chief Labour officer, and Mr Rexford k
Asubonteng, the Metro Labour Officer, Tema District.
