The world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China, Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) set new records in Safety on 30 April 2022 as it surpassed 25 million Safe working-hours without Lost Time Injury (LTI) for the first time in the history of its commercial operations. This milestone came alongside exceeding 25 million metric tonnes (MT) in overall production since the Company began its operations in 1971.
Commenting on this highest-ever Safety performance, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali stated:
“Alba is the author of its own destiny. Achieving 25 million-milestone, in both Safety and Production, allowed us to sign up in history books for our Golden Jubilee of Operations.
Safety and Production are mutually inclusive, and these numbers reflect that our strong Safety culture is behind our productivity performance. All our endeavours – Safety Campaigns, Hours, Visits, Lectures, etc., embody our belief that Safety comes first, no matter what.
I thank our people, employees and contractors’ personnel, for going above and beyond to deliver first-class results amidst the COVID-19 crisis.”
The Company marked this occasion with a small celebration at the Oasis Hall attended by Company’s Executives, Management and employees from different departments.
