Bahrain-based Nass Contracting, a leading building and civil contractor, recently conducted the ECITB (Engineering Construction Industry Training Board) International Health and Safety passport seminar for its employees.
The ECITB International Health and Safety passport scheme ensures that all site personnel have reached a recognized level of health and safety knowledge and awareness and to enable them to work on site more safely with reduced risk to themselves and others.
Successful candidates will be issued with an international ID card that can be transferable worldwide.
"To meet safety and health standards and guarantee the welfare of staff in all aspects of work we must ensure that all precautions are adhered to,” said Abdulnabi Marhoon, HSE manager at Nass Contracting.
“The aim of conducting the ECITB seminar is to create a culture of safety in the minds of staff, technicians and contractors, and familiarize all of our employees with the latest health and safety practices.”
“ECITB is responsible for equipping and developing the personnel capabilities that drive the success in leading the way in innovation and quality. Through our ECITB accreditation, we see an immense improvement in the safety standards of our workforce that has in turn increased productivity across various sectors and divisions,” said David Anthony, general manager of Nass Contracting.
Consisting of three stages - foundation, advanced and supervisor - the training courses are specifically designed for the construction and engineering construction industries. So far, employees of Nass Contracting have completed 400 foundation training and 90 advance training courses since obtaining the accreditation last year, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
