Alba’s chairman of the board of directors Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said: “Achieving 10 million working-hours without any LTI in the smelting industry is a rare feat, especially as we progress with the full ramp-up of Potline 6.”

“We could not have achieved this without a strong leadership emphasis on safety and health as well as collective ownership to maintain a zero-accident work environment,” he added.

Al Baqali said: “This proud landmark is the outcome of our pro-active commitment, and I thank everyone, employees and contractors, for thinking and adopting safety first and always.”

“While 10 million working-hours was an almost impossible target to achieve especially as 2019 was brimming with all kinds of activities relating to Line 6 Expansion Project, we have done it and outperformed ourselves thanks to our uncompromising approach toward safety,” he added.

The company acknowledged the contribution of every employee and contractor towards this achievement, it stated.
