Global safety award for Alba
Manama, April 18, 2010
Alba has won a major international award for its commitment to safety and efforts in creating a safe working environment for its employees.
The British Safety Council has, once again, conferred its International Safety Award for 2009 to Alba for the fourth consecutive year.
This will be the second prestigious award that Alba has won this year for the fourth time.
Earlier, Alba had won praise for having won the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Award, also, for the fourth time.
The British Safety Council, which was founded in 1957, is one of the world's leading health and safety organisations whose mission is to keep people healthy and safe at work.
The award recognises and rewards organisations that show a real commitment to improving corporate health and safety.
The award is acknowledged by the UK Health and Safety Executive as a powerful motivator for achieving high safety standards.
'Alba's track record for promoting good health and safety at the work place has been truly phenomenal, and it is encouraging to see these efforts being recognised internationally,' chief executive Laurent Schmitt said.
'Winning the British Safety Council Award for the fourth time is a matter of pride for all of us here at Alba since it provides a clear indication of how safety remains an intrinsic component of Alba's work culture.'
One of the most recent examples of Alba's success in ensuring that its operations constantly match global safety standards was when Alba's Calciner and Marine recently achieved 1,500,000 work hours without a single lost time injury.-TradeArabia News Service
