Manama, Oct. 18 (BNA): Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) marked 2023 as the seventh consecutive year of zero heat-related illnesses and injuries across its operations, a remarkable achievement in the aluminium industry.

 

Ali Al Baqali, Alba’s CEO, said that ensuring the safety of our employees and contractors is not a one-time effort but an ongoing journey.

 

“By fostering a culture where safety is everyone’s responsibility, we can create a workplace where accidents are prevented.

 

Achieving zero-heat related illnesses and injuries for seven-year in a row, especially in the tough 2023 summer, underlines our unwavering commitment to the well-being of our workforce,” he added.

 

Alba’s efforts to keep its employees and contractors’ workers safe during the challenging summer season include hydration surveys, heat-awareness sessions and workshops, distribution of cooling cloths to personnel to help regulate body temperature in hot environment, in addition to plant-wide summer safety campaign and mini-safety campaigns all-year round.

 

It has maintained Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) index measurement and communication – 4 times a day during the hot summer months – to all work areas via different channels such as e-mails, display screens as well as WhatsApp application.
