Health, safety & wellbeing

Alturki is committed to the best standards in Health & Safety (H&S). We have developed Alturki H&S Guidelines to ensure that all policies and management systems are in place. Due to the different business activities of each subsidiary, the Alturki H&S Guidelines prescribe essential program requirements while enabling each company flexibility to develop its own H&S Management System. Although not a requirement, companies are encouraged to pursue the ISO Management System Certification in (Safety ISO18001) and Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001).

H&S corporate policies

Alturki’s H&S program:

  • Actively funds ongoing safety initiatives, training programs, and safety materials, with a philosophy of continuous improvement by adopting a program of inspections, auditing, and reporting.
  • Requires the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be worn by workers who are exposed to known hazards.
  • Enforces and ensures all employees, as well as our contractors, are adequately trained and promote safe work practices.
  • Participates in conducting safety inspections to detect, eliminate and minimize health hazards, unsafe working conditions, and environmental impacts on the air, soil or water.
  • Actively investigates all incidents to determine root and underlying causes, and adopting corrective actions to prevent any recurrence.
  • Runs an audit program that assesses and reviews existing programs to improve H&S Performance.

All workers have the legal right to refuse unsafe work that either puts them in imminent danger, requires them to perform tasks they have not been adequately trained to do, or makes them privy to safety hazards that could reasonably be avoided with proper safety equipment, procedures, or necessary repairs.

Health & safety training

The internal policies at the subsidiaries ensure that each risk category authorizes the appropriate onboarding and training in line with employee job requirements. All H&S training sessions are recorded, and employees’ knowledge is verified to guarantee that it’s always up to date. Furthermore, whenever subsidiaries receive new projects that require moving to new locations, facilities or working from supplier or customer locations, we ensure that any H&S requirements or training sessions are in place.

  • Orientation for all new hires on the Alturki H&S Management System

Monitoring key H&S metrics

It is part of the Holding policy agenda to record, investigate, undertake corrective actions, and maintain permanent records of all incidents, regardless of the severity. An incident is defined as having the potential to or has caused a near miss, injury, illness, equipment/property damage, environmental impact, or reputational damage.

Appropriate accommodation for our labor workers

Our subsidiaries employ a significant number of labor workers who require accommodation at working sites. All our accommodations are aligned with the guidelines of the Ministry of Labor and meet mandatory standards. Accommodations maintain high hygiene levels and are designed with comfortable living spaces that do not lead to overcrowded sleeping areas.

When running our own accommodation facilities, or outsourcing this operation to third parties, members of our subsidiaries conduct audit visits to ensure that the accommodations meet our criteria. In the case of breaches to the standards of hygiene, health, and safety, or any other issue, this, in turn, is reported and addressed immediately.
