Khalid Shukur, manager of the Environment, Occupational Health and Safety (HSE) Department, said the two-days training course contained a total of 16 training hours and was held at ET’s Warsan station.
He said the training reflects ET’s endeavour to keep up with the highest standards of safety and was delivered by lecturer Ali Madhi, Regional Director for Training Services in the Middle East, India and South Asia at Lloyd’s Register.
The main focus of the training was the new requirements of ISO 45001, which was issued last March as an alternative to OHSAS 18001.
