Statement Concerning Odean Wood
May 9, 2018- JPS has noted with concern, the apparent misunderstanding as it relates to matters regarding Odean Wood.
Odean Wood is an employee of Williams & Smith Construction Company Limited, a contractor of JPS. He was injured while working at the Rockfort Power Plant.
Both immediately following the accident, and since, JPS has been in dialogue with the injured’s family members as well as the principal of Williams & Smith. The last meeting was held last Tuesday May 1 at 2:15pm, when senior members of JPS met with Odean’s family and their representatives, with a view to understanding how the company can assist Odean’s family and employer in securing any additional treatment overseas which the family may decide to access.
JPS continues to be in discussion with all relevant persons, as necessary.
