Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the Bahrain-based aluminium smelter, was recently honoured with the Gold Medal Award 2019 by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in recognition of its outstanding practices to ensure a safe and healthy work environment.
The award was received by Alba’s safety, health and environment manager Nezar Hameed during the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards ceremony held last week at the ExCeL, in London, UK, said a statement from the company.
The RoSPA Awards scheme recognises organisations’ achievement in health and safety management systems around the world, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Headline sponsor of the event was the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (Nebosh) for the 14th consecutive year.
Alba’s chief executive officer Tim Murray said: “We are honoured to receive this prestigious accolade, for the sixth year in a row, as it underlines our Extreme Ownership on the best safety standards over the years.”
“We look forward to keep the safety momentum as we are on course for Alba’s transformation to be the largest smelter in the world with the full ramp-up of its Line 6 Expansion Project by July 31,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
