Overview

International SOS was approached by an industry expert in building materials, with sites spread across Nigeria, to help them support their workforce’s health and wellbeing. The company operates production plants, depots and ready-mix sites in 19 states of Nigeria.

Problem

Our client’s manufacturing sites were in remote locations across Nigeria, where it was difficult for them to have access to adequate medical care for their workforce.

They required local and global medical expertise in order to mitigate on-site health risks, support their occupational health agenda and manage potential medical evacuations.

Solution

To provide the necessary medical support at all times and to cater for their employees’ health needs, International SOS now operates six fully staffed on-site clinics for this client. Besides providing primary and emergency care as well as occupational health services and managing medical evacuations, we also handle medical supplies on the sites and regularly deliver first-aid training to the client’s staff.

Impact

Our ongoing partnership since 2014 has proven highly beneficial for site workers and for the management team. The presence of on-site medical personnel effectively contributed to a reduction in malaria incidence for the past three years and to the improved management of chronic diseases.

Furthermore, during the pandemic, early detection of COVID-19 cases on one of our client’s sites avoided large scale infection and allowed business operations to be pursued.

Medical evacuations in case of incidents were also optimised – which consequently had a positive effect on cost and efficiency.
