Situated in the southern part of African continent, Namibia is one of the least densely populated counties in the world. Its economy is largely depends on agriculture exports, tourism and mining industry, which includes diamonds, gold, uranium, silver and base metals.
Mining contributes more than 10 per cent of GDP while agriculture and manufacturing contribute 5 per cent and 14 per cent, respectively. Other growing sectors are IT, banking, tourism and service industry.
Post independence, Namibia has been growing rapidly from all sides and has become the top emerging market economy in Africa. However, lack of skilled labour force and increasing number of work place related accidents are the cause of concern which prompted industry leaders to look for people who have knowledge and skills on occupational safety, health and environment management.
Green World Group in Namibia, a leading occupational health and safety training institute and consultants on work place safety, has added hundreds of skilled workforce to the industry to play a vital role on preventing men and machinery in Namibia.
