Saudi Readymix Achieves International Health and Safety Accreditation

The First Ready-mixed Concrete Company in Saudi Arabia to Receive OHSAS 18001

February 2015: Saudi Readymix announces that it has received OHSAS 18001 certification for its factory in Jubail. OHSAS is an international management system that helps organizations put in place sound occupational health and safety performance. The Company’s OHSAS 18001 system is fully aligned with its existing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 management systems

“Jubail is one of our largest factories in the Kingdom with multiple product lines,” says Salam Al Abduljabbar, QHSE & Continuous Improvement Director, “so we decided to start certifying our OHS management system in Jubail first. We have a plan in place to start certifying all our other commercial factories throughout the Kingdom in the near future.”

Saudi Readymix has a full-fledged Occupational Health & Safety department imposing a strict health and safety system at all its work locations and job sites. All the Company’s factory managers are OSHA certified and its employees undergo routine safety trainings. Saudi Readymix is the largest ready-mixed concrete producer in the Middle East and operates over 40 factories around the Kingdom.
