Ahmed bin Suleiman Al-Rajhi, presented the awards to the representatives of the winning companies at a ceremony held on January 10, 2019, at the Ministry of Labor and Social Development in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in the presence of H.E. Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Development for Labor Affairs Dr. Abdullah Bin Nasser Abuthnain.

The OSH award targets three sectors of activity, including construction, industry, and commerce, based on the latest statistics, which indicate high rates of injuries and work accidents in these areas during the past few years. The award recognizes companies that observe best practices in occupational safety and health in these specific sectors and aims to raise awareness among employers and employees regarding the importance of taking appropriate measures to protect workers from accidents and illness at work.

On this occasion, Awadh Eid Al-Ghamdi, the director of the Corporate Loss Prevention Department (CLPD) at Zamil Industrial, commented, “We are proud to accept this prestigious award, especially as it comes from an official government body, the Ministry of Labor and Social Development. The award represents the continued commitment of Zamil Industrial management and the CLPD team to achieve and maintain the highest possible standards of health and safety in the workplace. The OSH award will be added to the list of local and international awards that Zamil Industrial has received over the years in recognition of its outstanding performance in occupational safety and health.

The winning organizations were chosen based on their benchmarking measures, records, and evaluation of their performance, in line with global best practices in OSH. They were also rated on five additional factors: their OSH records, the commitment of senior management to workplace health and safety, the strength and quality of their OSH management systems, the existence of reporting and communication channels, and their guidance and educational programs.
