Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the world’s largest aluminium smelters, has announced that its Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali has been named in National Safety Council’s (NSC) ‘CEOs Who Get It’ list for 2023, in recognition of his commitment to protect and elevate the safety culture for Alba employees and contractors’ workers across the company.
This annual recognition by NSC highlights leaders who have built their organisations' safety strategy using four key components: risk reduction, performance measurement, safety management solutions as well as leadership and employee engagement.
Al Baqali is the only Arab CEO on the list.
Al Baqali said: “We are safety-minded as we have established the right balance between our top-down and the bottom-up management and the key to a strong Safety culture is in our hands. I set the tone and expectations for safety; however, each one of our employees and contractors’ personnel should act on them and prioritise Safety on the job and off the job.”
The National Safety Council is America’s leading non-profit safety advocate with the mission to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy. – TradeArabia News Service
