On the Sidelines of Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) Board Meeting (192), the Company Chairman and Board of Directors were presented the Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Award the Company won recently during an event in London.

The Award, for being the winner in the Chemical Industry Sector for Health and Safety Practices, was handed over to the Chairman and the Board of Directors by GPIC President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery, in the presence of members of the Executive Management. The President stressed everyone at the Company would continue their efforts to maintain its standards and reputation in the application of occupational safety and health practices.

Dr. Jawahery said he was proud of the Board of Directors’ approach, under the guidance of the Board of Directors, regard to investment in the human resources. He said the board follows up on courses and workshops for Company employees, which contribute in training and qualifying them in applying international safety standards.

He said the Company's operations during all stages of manufacturing and production demonstrated its concern towards the safety of individuals rather than profit.

He said the Management and all employees appreciate the Board’s balanced policies, through which it confirms a keenness to follow up on principles of safety to maintain GPIC’s achievements. He said the Company, for many years, had confirmed this excellence by repeatedly winning the RoSPA Award.

The Board of Directors congratulated the Management and staff for the achievement, which, he said, is of great importance to the list of successes. He reaffirmed the Company following high levels of global safety.

H.E. Dr. Al Sharyan said the Board of Directors would continue to provide all support to maintain the Company's achievements and excellence in the field of occupational health and safety, an important element of the success of any business.

He added the Management and employees are keen to continue to win safety Awards by committing to high standards of performance and global safety indicators.

The Award was also in recognition of GPIC’s practices and achievements in helping its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.

The Award is recognised internationally as the most prestigious in the industry. It is highly valued by organizations around the world and recognizes achievements in health and safety management systems, including leadership and manpower best practices.
