On June 20th 2023, The Welfare and Safety Departments launched a Fire Mock Drill at the newly built accommodation in Shahaniya. The goal is to ensure the employees’ readiness in case of a fire break out.
This new accommodation is currently housing 900 workers. It has all the basic facilities to serve the staff and adequate security to guard their safety. The twenty Fire Warden and First Aid Trainers that have been trained and certified, along with six Security Guards from Mezzan Security Services were present to assist in the drill.
The Drill was a success and the attendees were evaluated as ready.
It is important for the company to continually do Fire Mock Drills to test the effectiveness of fire safety systems and emergency plans in place and orient the employees on the same. The drill exercises will aid in developing a culture of safety, improving emergency preparedness, and lowering if not totally mitigating the risks associated with fire and other emergencies. Overall, this will enable QSS to reduce the chances of accidents, thereby helping save lives.
