On 24th August, an occupational health day was organized with the local hospital, in which hypertension awareness and screening were conducted on site at Takoradi. Two nurses from Ghana Health Service delivered talks surrounding the risk factors of hypertension, prevention, treatment, and control.

Four workers displayed hypertensive indicators that were beyond the medically acceptable ranges and their movements and activities will be monitored on site. Workers were appreciative of the exercise and have requested visits of other field experts to site.
