The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) celebrated health and safety milestones at two FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 infrastructure projects after Al Thumama Stadium and the training sites registered 15 million safe work hours.

A total of 10 million safe workers registered at Al Thumama Stadium and 5 million at the training sites. No injuries occurred at either site that caused construction to be halted. The milestones were celebrated by the SC and its various contractors, which organized award ceremonies for the workers involved.

SC's Health & Safety Manager (Assurance) Abdulla Al Bishri said: ‘We are delighted that the health and safety processes and procedures we implemented have achieved outstanding results. The credit must go to our workers and the entire project team.

‘We will continue with our commitment to health and safety to ensure that all parties taking part in Qatar 2022 projects implement the highest levels of regulations,’ he added.

Al Bishri noted that the lessons learned from the application of leading health and safety policies will be a legacy of Qatar 2022 that will carry on locally, regionally and internationally.

More than 3,500 people are currently employed at the Al Thumama Stadium construction site. Each received a certificate for their achievements, while more than 2,000 attended the appreciation ceremony. A dozen local companies are involved in the construction of the stadium, which will have a capacity of 40,000 and host matches up to the quarter-finals stage in 2022.

Meanwhile, two Qatari companies Nakheel Landscapes and Gulf Contracting are delivering the training sites, which currently employ more than 1,500 workers. Contractors involved in both projects have displayed an outstanding commitment to health and safety and worked closely with the SC to achieve this milestone. (QNA)
