The workshop to encourage the companies to become part of Tullow’s supply chain would help IT departments and suppliers to understand and implement Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Standards and Quality Management in their operations.
It would also assist them to build on their capacity and capability levels and increase the efficiency and international competitiveness of suppliers.
Mr Edward Owusu-Manu, Senior Contracts Advisor of Tullow Ghana addressing the opening session said the workshop was to inform suppliers on the international standards, requirements and the best practices to position them globally and set targets to grow their businesses.
He said it would also help companies to have clearer picture of how to upgrade their skills and knowledge to become bigger players in the market.
The management of Tullow Ghana regularly organises such workshops as parts of its social responsibility to build capacity among local businesses to encourage and enable them to become part of its supply chain.
