Four seasons in a row he has been playing the Madrid striker as a professional (between 2012 and 2014 he had participated in Second A with Castilla, practically in young age), since he ended up on loan at the Cordoba in 2015-16. In that campaign, De Tomás scored six goals, of which up to five came in the second round, and that only disputed four days as a starter. One course later, history was repeated with the Valladolid, again in Second A, although with more participation in the second half of the championship (14 titles) and scoring ten of its 14 goals from all over LaLiga. And the tempowered last, already in First, De Tomás was able to materialize six targets in the second round, of the 14 he did with Lightning in LaLiga. 17 of the 19 days he disputed them as headline and complete.So, in these last four consecutive years as a professional has marked 20 goals in the first laps (five per course) and 38 in the second: an average of 9.5 per season. Such a record would surely be worth salvation. It is the highest signing in the history of Espanyol. 20 million fixed, plus 2.5 variables and another in training rights that make it a bet as risky as determined on which to deposit a good part of the weight in the struggle for permanence. Raúl de Tomás assumes the challenge, as he assured in his presentation now a week ago, and his own scoring numbers endorse him. It’s a ‘killer’ of second laps, just the section that the parrots begin this Sunday against Villarreal. The debut of RDT in LaLiga. The climax, however, would come the following campaign, contributing decisively to the Rayo Vallecano promotion with a whopping 17 goals in the second round (with up to three ‘hat-tricks’), of the 24 he ended up scoring. There he did participate in 19 days of the game, of the 21 that make up each lap in Second.
…calls for programmes to sensitise workersMinister within the Social Protection Ministry, Keith Scott has stated that various surveys conducted by the ministry indicated that young persons who are under the age of 25 are more susceptible to injuries at the workplace.Minister within the Social Protection Ministry, Keith ScottThis statement was made on Friday, when the Minister indicated that the key reason for this was the fact that these employees do not possess adequate experience, which would alert them to dangerous practices.“Within the rim of occupation and employment of young workers – which we consider to between the ages of 15 to 24 – is the available statistics and it shows that that area of youth are more vulnerable. They are much more exposed than the mature counterparts to occupational accidents and occupational diseases,” he said.However, Minister Scott noted that measures must be put in place to prevent these accidents, and the safety of young employees must not be jeopardised, especially those who work in perilous environments.“Attention must be paid to the health and safety of young workers who comprise a significant percentage of our population and our workforce,” the Minister stated.“The report on our most recent population and housing census shows that youth constitutes almost 20 per cent of the population. By any standards, that is not a group which should be treated lightly. They comprise the future of our nation and must be nurtured and protected at all costs,” he added.Additionally, Minister Scott has called for the establishment of formal programmes to educate employees on various practices which they should always follow when on the job. Furthermore, experienced employees should be tasked with the responsibility to ensure that the younger persons are following company guidelines and regulations. This, he said, will reduce the number of workplace hazards and accidents from a general standpoint.“There is need for policies and programmes [to be] put in place to educate, sensitise and protect them from the risk and dangers associated with work,” Scott insisted.Recently, the management of the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC) modified the company’s occupational outfits by incorporating reflective equipment. This is in light of the fact that employees expressed their disagreement with wearing the mandatory reflective safety vest.Minister Scott, in his final remarks, stated that the attention being placed on workers’ safety should be amplified this month, since World Day for Safety and Health at work will be celebrated on April 28. Additionally, the entire month of April is dedicated towards this observance. read more
