Our board game, PowerPlay, which was the basis for this victory is well endorsed and well received by stakeholders.

He noted that the objective of the game is to inculcate the culture using creative communication such that as the game is played, knowledge is passed along. The game highlights violations in the sector and also calls to attention to common hazards in the domestic place, with the overall aim of preventing and reducing accidents.

“It is line with our strategy which guides our communication such that our messaging is passed across effectively and creatively to ensure customers are enlightened. This award is also a testimony to the positive impact we are making on the society in terms of safety and welfare” he said.
