STANDARD Organisation of Nigeria (SON), through its National Mirror Committee on Facility Management, is making plans to enhance Nigeria’s maintenance culture for quality and safety of public and private facilities.

Chairman of the committee, also known as ISO/TC267NMC, Mr Collins Osayamwen, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

According to Osayamwen, no fewer than 10 professional associations, including Association of Facility Global fISO/TC267, International Facilities Services, among others, will share experiences and ideas that will be beneficial to Nigerians.

He added that the Special Adviser to the President on Ease of Doing Business, Dr Tunde Ayeye, the Group Managing Director, International Facilities Services and other relevant stakeholders would be in attendance.

“It is going to be engaging, as Nigerians and the general public will be sensitised on facility management and how adherence to maintenance culture could change the negative perception of the country.

“This will ultimately go a long way to ensure the quality and safety of public and private facilities like buildings, roads, bridges, power plant facilities and many more in the country,” Osayamwen said.

According to him, the event which will be held through Zoom on June 29, will enlighten the audience on how the new ISO41000 standard will be a game changer to the facility management industry.

He added that ISO/TC267 would also collaborate with the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), as well as Nigeria Institution of Estate Surveyors. (NAN.)
