The world’s largest aluminium smelter outside of China, Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), has set another record by reaching 23 million working-hours without lost time injury (LTI) across its site.

After the firm hit 20 million man-hours without LTI in April, Alba said it has achieved another “first-time historical milestone” with the new record.

The firm added that its pro-active commitment and uncompromising approach toward safety helped them achieve 23 million working-hours without LTI across its operations.

Commenting on the achievement, Alba chief executive officer, Ali Al Baqali, said: “A strong safety culture is built over time; it is never given. Our pro-active commitment and uncompromising approach toward safety has helped us achieve 23 million working-hours without any lost time injury (LTI) for the first time in our operations,” said Al Baqali.

“As we approach the hot summer months, we must be more safety-conscious to ensure the safety and well-being of all our people.

Alba has progressively marked safety achievements over the past six months after hitting 15 million working-hours without LTI on 21 December 2019, and then 15 million working-hours without LTI on 7 April 2020.
