Aluminium Bahrain, the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China,  has expressed solidarity with Bahrain’s efforts to combat the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
 
As a responsible corporate citizen and in addition to following the directives and recommendations of Bahrain, Alba has taken the lead in enforcing strict protocols and methods to protect its employees and contractors from COVID-19. With one of the biggest workforces in Bahrain, Alba has introduced numerous safety initiatives across the plant and various departments as early as January 2020, the company said.
 
COVID-19 awareness sessions for employees and contractors were and are being conducted by Alba Health Care team regularly via video-messaging and online platforms. Other key measures includes sanitisation of different departments and shop-floor areas, social distance markings, distribution of protective kits comprising gloves and masks as well as hand sanitisers, increasing hand sanitiser dispenser units across the company, providing only take-away or delivery service from its canteens and sharing the Government’s directives and news regularly via different channels.
 
Alba, on March 23, in line with His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s royal gesture of empowering mothers to work from home, announced remote working for all Alba employees, in particular women and senior staff. Employees and contractors were also invited to join Alba’s volunteering team, which is part of TEAM Bahrain, to help fight the spread of COVID-19 [Alba has over 500 volunteers to-date], it said.
 
Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali said: “The health and safety of our human assets, employees and contractors, are paramount to Alba. We will go above and beyond for the Safety of our people to maintain smooth operations. We also remain committed to ensure sustainable supply of our raw materials along with delivering our products to clients across the globe.”
 
Alba is closely monitoring COVID-19 situation and has activated its response strategy based on recommendations of Bahrain and global health organisations and in line with the company’s business continuity plan, the statement said. - TradeArabia News Service
