Further to that, appropriate protective equipment is provided in areas where there may be a risk of injury or exposure to hazardous substances or conditions.

 

Commenting on the Campaign, Ms. Hind Al-Sabbagh, Head of Corporate Communications at GARMCO said, “We are delighted to announce the launch of the upcoming safety awareness campaign. The main idea is to make the campaign more memorable and a little humorous while emphasizing the seriousness of the messages. By drawing on the hero theme, GARMCO encourage workers and staff to be heroes by not underestimating any risk in the workplace no matter how small”.
