Importance of Good Health & Hygiene



JGC adheres to the practice of continuously promoting good health and hygiene practices at sites, camps and offices.  This is in line with their commitment to sustain a high standard of health and safety throughout the life of the Project.  JGC believes that the wellbeing of their workforce is critical to the success of the Project and in its efforts to achieve the "Zero Incidents" target until its completion.  Promotional materials have been released throughout the site and camps to remind everyone of their responsibilities in maintaining their good health and hygiene at all times.



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.
