After a government safety inspector visited a Kingdom Hall construction project in a suburb of Sydney, Australia, he stated: “
[It] was one of the best sites I have visited in regard to safety in a long period of time.”
The inspector wrote: “
The site was very well run . . . [It] was very clean and tidy with excellent access and egress, all power leads were suspended [above the] ground with plastic hooks, [and] fire extinguishers [were] at [the] ready . . . All persons on site were wearing long sleeves, long pants, hard hats and safety glasses. . . . The persons on site were very helpful.”
Witnesses view safety as of utmost importance,” said Victor Otter, the site manager. “
When we work safely, we reflect God’s view of life and promote harmony and happiness. After working hard all day, I often headed home with a smile on my face.”
The 127-seat Kingdom Hall was completed in April 2012.
