Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest smelters in the world, has won the British Safety Council's International Safety Award for last year.
The company received this international acclaim for its commitment and efforts taken towards maintaining safety, health and well-being of its workforce, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Widely regarded as a premier event in the safety and health calendar, the International Safety Award by the British Safety Council recognises and rewards organisations that are committed to corporate safety and health.
The award is acknowledged by the UK Health and Safety Executive as a powerful motivator for achieving high safety standards, said the report.
