Arcelor Mittal supports bereaved families

MONROVIA-Arcelor Mittal said on Saturday in a statement  that it continues to support the bereaved families of  two of its staff who died last week in a rail accident.

“Following the tragic rail accident of 11th January 2022 in which two of our dedicated staff lost their lives, ArcelorMittal Liberia continues to support the bereaved families and staff recovering from serious injuries,” it said.

On Wednesday January 12, 2022, a chartered flight transported the other four of our injured colleagues to Dakar, Senegal for advanced medical care, following frantic efforts to process their travel documents and COVID-19 certificates.

The statement said: “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 will do its utmost to continue to support everyone during these sad moments.

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 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.
