In line with its commitment to lead the industry on standards of safety in the workplace, Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has participated in the Oman Workplace Safety and Loss Prevention Conference 2019
Held under the patronage of Sheikh Khalid bin Omar bin Said Al Marhoon, minister of Civil Service, the conference brought together regulators and companies across various industries to discuss the enhancement of operating safety standards in Oman.
Mohamed Al Mujaini, OOMCO’s senior manager Health, Safety, Environment, Quality, Technical and Sustainable Development, spoke at the event and introduced the concept of the STOP card, which encourages every employee to stop unsafe actions or conditions that they may observe in daily work life.
He also presented the company’s experience in using the STOP card and Safety Observation Conversation (SOC) as well as additional measures OOMCO has put in place towards instilling a positive safety culture.
“Safety has always been an unyielding element of all of our operations and an integral part of our company culture. Much more than merely a set of rules that we must comply with, it is an obligation to safeguard our employees, customers, contractors and the public,” said Al Mujaini.
The conference was launched in 2017 as part of the Oman National Development Agenda to review and develop workplace safety and security, and also gather safety professionals and industry members to enhance operating safety standards in Oman. The event invited local and international experts, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors, who showcased cutting-edge technology, research, products and know-how for a safer and more profitable business environment.
