Alba will also distribute free baby car seats to its employees with children under the under the age of 18 months at the Alba Club.
Tim Murray, chief executive, said: "At Alba, safety is our number one priority and this is not only within our plant but also extends to the families and communities around us. Car safety for children is an important issue for which we raise want to raise awareness.
“Even the smallest of accidents could result in a fatality if the child is not in a safety seat or not wearing a seatbelt. We hope this safety campaign will be a call-to-action for all the people in Bahrain to improve car safety.” - TradeArabia News Service
