Manama, October 3, 2007
Bapco has achieved a world first by winning a top award from the US National Safety Council (NSC).
It will be the first recipient outside North America of NSC's Robert W Campbell Award for its business excellence through safety, health and environment management, said a report in our sister publication the Gulf Daily News.
Company officials will accept the award on October 15, during the NSC's 95th Annual Congress and Expo, in Chicago.
The award is 'an honour to be proud of', said Oil and Gas Affairs Minister and Bapco chairman Dr Abdulhussein Mirza.
'It reflects the impressive hard work, well-organised and committed management. The award has been granted to Bapco as a result of patient, efficient and sustainable efforts of the entire Bapco family,' said Dr Mirza, who is also chairman of the National Oil and Gas Authority.
NSC president and chief executive officer Alan McMillan praised Bapco for its achievements.
'Bapco has successfully demonstrated that its safety, health and environmental programmes are directly linked to its business performance, productivity and sustainability and has therefore earned the distinction of being the NSC's 2007 Robert W Campbell Award recipient,' he said.
'It is clear that Bapco's senior management believes that extraordinary business performance starts with dedication and commitment to safety, health and environment management, and has integrated that belief into every level of its business.'
Mr McMillan said Bapco impressed the Campbell Award's international expert review panel with the range of stringent audits and assessments the company regularly undertakes in order to maintain and exceed international standards.
The panel also noted Bapco's corporate investment in safety, health and environment management and the significant and positive impact they had on its overall business performance.- TradeArabia News Service
