Alba Scoops Top Safety Honours: British Safety Council Award 2024 with Merit

Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), the world’s largest single-site smelter, continues to demonstrate its Safety leadership, cementing its position as one of safety industry leaders. This achievement is underscored by the recent win of the prestigious British Safety Council (BSC)’s International Safety Award 2024 with Merit.

Recognising Alba's exceptional Safety record over the past year, the award was presented during the BSC’s International Safety Awards Gala Dinner that was held on Friday 07 June 2024 at the InterContinental London Park Lane Hotel, United Kingdom. Nezar Hameed, Alba’s Senior Safety and Health Manager proudly received the recognition from Michael Robinson, CEO of the British Safety Council in the presence of Zainab Hassan, Alba’s Head of Medical Administration.

On this occasion, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, Ali Al Baqali, commented:
“At Alba, Safety isn't just a priority, it's a shared responsibility. A strong Safety culture, where teamwork and prioritising Safety are fundamental, is embedded throughout our organisation.
By empowering our employees to prioritise Safety in all aspects of their work, we've built a strong foundation for a zero-accident environment. This award from the British Safety Council is a proud testament to our entire team's dedication.”

Since 2014, Alba has received a total of 11 awards by the British Safety Council. In November 2023, Alba was the first smelter in the GCC to achieve the coveted 4-star audit rating, following a successful Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council.
