World Day for Safety and Health at Work observed

28 Apr 2021

Asyad Group joined the world in celebrating the 2021 World Day for Safety and Health at Work, which is marked every year on April 28 since 2003 to promote health and safety at the workplace. The International Labour Organization (ILO) celebrated the day this year under the theme ‘Anticipate, prepare and respond to crises’.

Since its establishment in 2016, Asyad Group maintained an unwavering commitment to occupational health and safety (OHS) across its various functions, holding the protection and well-being of its employees as a top priority. 

This principle translated into developing resilient, agile and responsive OHS systems built with the latest technological solutions to face any challenge, while securing business continuity and safeguarding the supply chain for all sectors.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its emerging challenges, Asyad put in place new dynamic and resilient working systems to ensure the continuity of the logistics sectors and uninterrupted operation of Oman’s ports as they remain open to all shipping routes. 

In addition, a flexible and highly efficient contingency plan was devised and enacted in 2020 to fight the spread of coronavirus at the workplace, set the necessary prevention measures for handling all vessels, safely carry out maritime pilotage operations without close contact between pilots and crews, notify all shipping agents to submit IMO-approved COVID-19 medical disclosures, and enact container disinfection protocols before shipping, unloading or delivery.

In a further push to minimise the risk, Asyad looked towards the latest technological solutions to digitise all commercial transactions, protecting customers and saving them time and effort.
