Douglas OHI, Voltas, and Larsen & Toubro have been named on the Health and Safety Initiative of the Year shortlist for the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019.

The CW Oman Awards category has been designed to recognise excellence in the field of health, safety, and environment (HSE) in Oman's construction industry.  

One of last year’s finalists, Voltas Oman, has made it onto the three-name shortlist with its Team Safety Campaign, which saw it record more than three million man-hours worked without a lost-time injury on the Kempinski Hotel Muscat.

Meanwhile, Douglas OHI’s Say Hello, Wave Goodbye Plant Safety Awareness Training Programme makes the shortlist for top health and safety honours as well. The scheme provided a practical and hands-on lesson to help reduce the risk of falls from height – one of the most common causes of fatalities on construction sites.

Douglas OHI will be looking for another win this year after picking up the prize for Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year at the CW Awards 2018 in Dubai.

A Tripod Rescue Kit designed by Larsen & Toubro rounds up the list of potential Health and Safety Initiative of the Year winners.

Designed to lift or lower people safely in rescue operations, Larsen & Toubro’s device not only helps to improve safety standards, but can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, headaches, or dizziness caused by rescue operations.

The company used the kit during its construction of infrastructure facilities for the Sumail Industrial Estate.

One of Douglas OHI, Larsen & Toubro, or Voltas Oman will walk away with the HSE Initiative of the Year trophy at the CW Oman Awards 2019, due to be held at the recently-opened five-star Kempinski Hotel Muscat on 25 March, 2019.
