Meet SHEQO – The Safety Fish

Sheqo the Safety Fish is the second cartoon character of who will become a regular contributor to opinion pieces for the magazine.

Sheqo – named after Nemo, the well-known clown fish of movie fame, swims around in full scuba gear after being instructed by the Safety department that safety comes first. The irony is that fish do not need scuba gear. And this is what Sheqo will be writing about. All those safety requirements, rules, slogans and gear, nobody needs.

Sheqo’s mission is to spark debate on SHEQ issues and add some humour to the mundane world of SHEQ.
