The world’s largest smelter in the world outside of China, Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), which recently inaugurated its Line 6 Expansion project, announced that it has topped 15 million working hours without Lost Time Injury (LTI) on 21 December, 2019, for the first time since its commercial operation started in 1971.

Alba has consistently delivered on its Health and Safety performance initiatives by achieving 5 million safe man-hours on 30 April, 2019, followed by 10 million working-hours without LTI on 27 August, 2019.

Congratulating the firm on its latest milestone, the chairman of the Board of Directors at Alba, Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa, said: “We thank our employees and contractors without whom this milestone would not have been possible. We look forward to unfolding a new era in 2020 as Alba becomes a 1.5 million metric tonnes smelter with Line 6 fully on stream.”

 Commenting on the achievement, the acting chief executive officer at Alba, Ali Al Baqali, said: “Achieving 15 million working-hours without LTI for the first time in Alba’s history proves that everything is possible when we, employees, and contractors, want the same objective. As we are about to enter 2020, we will remain focussed on Safety first and foremost, employee development, community development, and operational resilience.”
