GCX ENFORCES HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES TO PROTECT ALL STAKEHOLDERS AMIDST CORONA VIRUS

The Ghana Commodity Exchange is an electronic trading platform that links buyers and sellers of agricultural commodities. Being a vital player in the agricultural value chain of Ghana, the GCX continues to operate to ensure that food security is maintained across the country amidst these trying moments.

 

GCX operates warehouses in Wa, Sandema, Tumu, Tamale, Wenchi, Kintampo, Ejura, Kumasi and Afram plains. Here, grains are received, sampled and graded to meet international standards before trade. For this reason, strict safety protocols are being observed at these warehouses. Water, soap and hand sanitizers have been made available for use by all workers at the warehouses and individuals who visit to do business. Staff have also been provided with masks and gloves and in addition, the wearing of masks has been made compulsory thereby no entry is permitted if anyone seeking to enter the premises does not have a prescribed mask on.

Preventive protocols issued by State Authorities have been put in place to protect staff from being exposed to the virus. At the Head Office, hand sanitizers have been made available at vantage points for all staff and visitors. Frequent washing of hands with soap under running water is also being encouraged. There is also the routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces.

 

Additionally, the checking of temperatures with the IR thermometers has been operationalized both at the warehouses and head office, along with the mandatory wearing of nose masks before admittance into the Head Office for all Staff, Members and Visitors. Staff are provided with prescribed masks and are instructed to use them accordingly.

 

In line with the Government’s directive to observe social distancing, the Exchange currently runs a shift system for its staff. This has been done to scale-down the number of workers present at the workplace at every given point in time in order to make it possible to observe the prescribed social distance of 1-meter.

 

As health officials work around the clock to find a cure for COVID-19, the GCX is cautiously hopeful that by implementing the above-mentioned health protocols, the spread of the virus could be mitigated at the workplace as we await a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
