Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), the world’s largest single-site smelter, has been awarded the British Safety Council (BSC)’s International Safety Award with merit, reflecting its safety leadership and exceptional safety record

The award was presented during the BSC’s International Safety Awards Gala Dinner held in London in June. Nezar Hameed, Alba’s senior safety and health manager received the award from Michael Robinson, CEO of the British Safety Council in the presence of Zainab Hassan, Alba’s head of Medical Administration.

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.”

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