Workmen Compensation Insurance payment to Yomatechs Late Offshore Staff

It was indeed a great moment of relief and happiness as Mrs Emmanuel Umoetuk was handed over the cheque of her late husband’s workmen compensation insurance cover claim which was paid to Yomatech as part of the processes for the workmen compensation insurance cover for all employees who work for Yomatech both as direct staff and contract staff.

Mr Emmanuel Umoetuk was employed with Yomatech Nigeria Limited as an Electrical Foreman in December 2007 on the Escravos Gas project EGP3, which is a project between Chevron and Hyundai Heavy Industries, Yomatech is executing the Electrical and Instrumentation aspect of this contract at the Escravos tank farm facility in the swamps of the southern Niger delta oil rich region.

Mr Umoetuk died in Warri on his way to crew change for his monthly three weeks on and one week off shifts in July of 2008, he is survived by one wife and four children.

After receiving the cheque the family members were full of accolades for the Yomatech management for her sincerity and honesty of purpose, as they confessed that they were not even expecting anything and were very surprised when they got the call to come for a presentation of insurance compensation for their deceased benefactor.

The above scenario underscores the need for professionalism and adherence to best practice standards in the requirements for operating as an Oil service company in the upstream sector of Nigeria’s Oil and gas industry, the importance of adequate insurance packages to cover associated risks that workers are exposed to in daily routine operations onshore and offshore is a vital and cardinal standard which must be upheld by all service support companies in Nigeria.

Yomatech is poised to lead and pioneer the quality of services offered by Indigenous support/service companies to the major E&P companies operating within Nigeria’s upstream sector and will continue to adhere to highest HR norms and practices obtainable globally in the industry.

Mrs Umoetuk was admonished by the YNL MD to put the money to good use as it was Gods way of providing relief to her as a widow and to also provide support for the children of the deceased.
