ACWA Power Barka has received numerous local, regional and international awards and recognitions in every aspect of business; however this accomplishment of one decade without an LTI is without a doubt the most significant.
The Board of Directors appreciated the exemplary effort placed by the team which enabled the business to achieve this noteworthy milestone. The Chairman of the Board, Mohammed A. Abunayyan, described ACWA Power Barka as a safety leader portraying world class performance in the power and water sector.
Mr. Abunayyan further noted “we are proud of our Omani staff members who were paramount in achieving this world class success story for an Omani Company.”
Nadeem Rizvi, CEO of ACWA Power Barka, has attributed this significant achievement to the best operational practices and strong work ethics implemented at the business by both ACWA Power Barka and its operator, First National Company for Operations & Maintenance Services LLC (‘NOMAC Oman’). Mr Rizvi explained that the outstanding safety record was achieved because of the team’s focus on proactive and behavior based safety culture. ACWA Power Barka acknowledges the crucial support of its parent company, ACWA Power, in this achievement.
Ahmed Al Subhi, the General Manager of NOMAC Oman, while celebrating this success has affirmed the operator’s firm commitment to sustain the safety record by combating complacency.
Coinciding with the global safety day, the company also celebrated its Annual Safety Day on 28 April 2012. The entire team took this opportunity to re-affirm its commitment towards safety. On this occasion, Mr Subhi explained that safety is the first and foremost priority of NOMAC Oman.
‘Safety Comes First’ is a core value of the organization. The team believes all occupational accidents can be prevented, working safely is a condition of employment and all team members and contractor’s staff have a right to stop work if they identify an unsafe working condition.
From inception, an important strategic element of the corporate social responsibility of the company has been to focus on making a difference in the local community.
The company has achieved this goal by developing the local talent and inculcating a safety culture of the highest standards in the lives of team members and their families. The company has also reached out to its contractor staff and the local community by carrying out several safety awareness programs and campaigns.
ACWA Power Barka and NOMAC Oman remain committed to promoting a safe work environment and safe future.
