Oman hotels project achieves safety record
Crowne Plaza Duqm achieves four million man-hours without lost time
The organisation set up to invest in and develop tourism projects in Oman has announced that it has achieved four million man-hours without any Lost-Time Injury (LTI) due to accidents in the construction of its Crown Plaza Duqm hotel project.
The firm said that it achieved the milestone during a 735-day period when approximately 990 workers were in site from a variety of companies including Galfar Engineering & Contracting, Al Sarooj Construction Co, Fluid Engineering and Services Co, Al Hajiri Trading, Proscape Oman Global Gas Services and Al Ansari Trading Enterprise.
Omran CEO Eng Wael bin Ahmed Al Lawati said: “A careful inspection and monitoring process is implemented for every project we are developing.
"We ensure that health and safety measures are taken seriously and responsibly by all, from executive management to every worker on site, as we believe that our people are the driving force of QHSE procedures.
"We are committed to continue our vigilance in protecting the welfare of everyone involved in our projects and adapting a considered approach to tourism development on all our sites.”
The Crowne Plaza Duqm has been under development since 2008 and is set to complete before the end of the year.
Once ready, it will contain 218 bedrooms and 18 suites.
