Alba gives heat stress management training
Manama, August 15, 2013
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) is implementing the Heat Stress Management Programme to ensure that employees remain better informed about practical measures needed to be taken for enjoying a comfortable and safe summer.
The programme, conducted during July and August is in its third consecutive year. It defines the accountabilities of each management level in preventing heat stress, sets guidelines in advising new recruits and provides measures for applying procedures and practices without any deviation.
In addition, heat level indicators along with the daily heat stress index present some helpful tips that employees can use to protect themselves during summer.
Chief operations officer Isa Al Ansari said: “Summer is usually one of the most challenging seasons of the year but it doesn’t have to be so. If effective preventive measures are taken to combat the heat, then one will be able to enjoy a safe and comfortable summer."
"For the past three years, the Heat Stress Management Programme has provided employees with helpful tips that have ensured protection from heat stress and the ability to give their best performance,” Al Ansari added. - TradeArabia News Service
