- Economic hardship resulting from depressed national economy
- Incitement of communities by their representatives.
- Urban – rural migration
These typical problems yield several (demands on the engineering companies and their contractors, such as:
- Infrastructure amenities such as roads, water, electricity, contracts and

acquisition of decreased sacred areas.
- Claims for damages resulting from projects and construction activities.
Having known these and being an environmentally sensitive company, we plan to forestall much of these disturbances and rather enjoy the active co-operation of the communities involving the said communities in our operations.

In case of ordinary combustibles such as paper, wood, textiles, rubber etc., cooling with water is the most effective way of distinguishing a class A of fire. Use water foam or water based liquids.’
In case of fires of vapour, gasoline, oil, grease, paint, sol vent, etc. the best
extinguishing agents are dry chemicals, carbon dioxide and / or foam (water can be only used as a spray or mist). In most cases using water to fight a class B fire will only result in spreading the fire
In case of electric fires (fires caused by electricity) water must not be used as an
extinguishing agent as this may give rise to the danger of electrocution. Carbon
dioxide or dry chemicals are the best extinguishing agents.
