Importance of Good Hygiene
The Barzan Onshore Project implemented the Good Hygiene Program throughout the Project Site in compliance with HSSE Plans and Program and its Health Management System. The Good Hygiene Program started from a "creating awareness" campaign focused on the importance and benefits of Good Hygiene. The program aims to minimize and prevent the spread of infectious diseases whether we are at work, at home, traveling for business or personal pleasure or just enjoying life in public places.
To ensure that all workers at the site are observing Good Hygiene practices, a Medical Doctor, together with an Industrial Hygienist and an Environmental Supervisor carried out an inspection and randomly checked how they wear dust masks.
The Doctor explained the importance of dust masks and showed all workers the proper way of wearing the mask and how to identify worn out PPE that needs immediate replacement.
After the random inspection, workers expressed their appreciation to the team for taking the time to inspect their respective areas.
