As part of its health and safety measures, Omani contractor Douglas OHI has conducted a training on electrical safety work practices for its workers deployed at the Duqm Refinery project that covers a plot area of 9km2.
According to Douglas OHI, the workers participating in the training were reminded of the guidelines for safety working around electrical hazards.
The training included sessions on specific hazards associated with their potential exposure; isolation of energy; hazard identification; wiring, connection to supply; generation, transmission; distribution installations; and clearance distances.
Workers were also made aware of the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as insulated tools, while working around electrical hazards. In addition, they were also reminded of the emergency procedures.
In June, Douglas OHI recorded 15 million safe man-hours on the project. The construction giant has previously also carried out an environmental spill demonstration campaign at its project site in Duqm, with an aim to demonstrate the steps to be followed in case of a chemical spillage at the site.
As of April, the project recorded 2,92,591m3 of concrete poured; 2,034 civil piles driven; 22,455.5 tonnes of structural steel usage; installation of a 95,843m pipe, and 35,579.7 tonnes of tanks used.
