Al Ghubra Power and Desalination Company (GPDCO), a part of Nama Group, has achieved a record of five million safe man hours during 1,884 working days, which will be added to the company’s health, safety and environment (HSE) records.

This accomplishment happened at the end of the second quarter of this year with support and commitment from both the company and staff, said a statement.

Yaqoob Al Rabaani, HSSE manager at GPDCO, said: “First of all, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to all employees at the company for their commitment to the principles of HSE and the company’s laws while performing their work.

“I would also like to thank the company’s board of directors and the departments directors for their continues follow-up, support and participation in this achievement, which is considered the best ever in the company’s history.

“I am certainly feeling relieved for having a work environment free from LTI which makes employees more efficient at their work in an LTI free work environment.”

“Achieving this record provides support for the company’s HSE team and motivation for achieving GPDCO’s goal of a safe work environment for employees and contractors. This achievement is a result of teamwork and the company pays serious attention to HSE through providing a specialised and qualified team and through organising training courses for all employees,” said Al Rabaani.

“As well as, focusing on the employees, who work in the plant and whom their work environment requires knowledge of all dangers surrounding them, teaching them how to deal with incidents and how to use the equipment’s properly,” he added.
