Several members of the public took the opportunity on Friday to get free health screenings at a mini exposition which organized by Dominica Electricity Services Ltd, DOMLEC, the island’s sole electricity company.

The event, which was held at Peebles Park, formed part of activities organized by DOMLEC during the month of May in observance of Health and Safety Month.

The company has been observing Health and Safety month under the theme: “Safety and Quality: Our Values without Compromise”

“This month has been very important to us. We highlighted a number of issues of safety within the company and on the fields as our lines men went out,” Public Relations Officer (PRO) of DOMLEC, Adina Bellot-Valentine, told the media during an interview on Friday.

She said one of the highlights of the month were visits to primary schools from Portsmouth to Soufriere.

“We did twenty schools in two weeks, highlighting electricity safety and this went very well for us,” she noted. “Because”,  she continued, “we believe that targeting the kids  -they are our customers of the future; they are the ones going home to take the messages to their parents and so it was a really exciting time for us.”

According to Bellot, “We got some really good reviews from the schools and the students and we are hoping that we can continue Health and Safety month, not only in 2015 but throughout 2015 and beyond.”

The Dominica Red Cross, PetroCaribe, Nurse Priscilla Prevost of the Healthy Lifestyle &Corporate Wellness Services and the Environmental Health Department all formed part of the Mini-Expo.

Health screenings which included full body sensing, cholesterol triglyceride and blood pressure checks were all being provided for free.

A number of schools on the island among them, the Berean Christian Academy and St. Martin Primary, visited the mini expo.
