ArcelorMittal Transports 4 Injured Staff To Senegal


Following the tragic rail accident of January 11, 2022 in which two of ArcelorMittal’s staff lost their lives, the company says it has and will continued to support the bereaved families and staff recovering from serious injuries.

   An ArcelorMittal update has disclosed that on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, a chartered flight transported the other four injured staffs to Dakar, Senegal, for advanced medical care, following frantic efforts to process their travel documents and COVID-19 certificates.

   “AML acknowledges that these are truly difficult times for the families of our fallen colleagues and those who were injured. It is also a difficult period for the rest of the ArcelorMittal Liberia family.

   “AML management is in regular contact with and has visited the homes of our departed brothers to express our profound sympathy and that the company willdo its utmost to continue to support everyone during these sad moments,” AML noted.

   On Friday, Stefan Buys, ArcelorMittal’s Executive Vice President and CEO for Mining [Global], along with senior executives of ArcelorMittal Liberia visited the homes of the bereaved families in Yekepa and Camp Four (immediately outside Yekepa) and assured them of the company’s fullest support, beyond its legal obligations to care for the wellbeing of the families.

   “I want to express my personal and deepest sympathy to the family and on behalf of everyone at ArcelorMittal express our condolences to you.  We are here to share your grief and provide some comfort to your pains; the organization will support you and your family and our Human Resource Department will remain in contact with you to ensure that you get all the right support,” Buys said when he visited one of the families affected.
