Construction at Al Rayyan Stadium has reached a major milestone following the completion of more than five million man-hours without a ‘Lost Time Accident’.
The major construction safety landmark, which means no injuries that have caused work on-site to be stopped have occurred in over five million hours worked, was celebrated with a ceremony led by Project Manager Abdullah Al Fehani and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) team.
More than 2,700 people currently work at Al Rayyan Stadium – a proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar – each day ahead of a mid-2019 completion date. Speaking as he awarded certificates to the contractors leading work on-site, Al Fehani said: “This is a major achievement that everyone working on-site should be proud of. Not only is it good for every one of us who gets to work in a safe environment, but enhanced health and safety also represents the real legacy of this World Cup that our HSSE team works hard to create.”
Yasir Al Jamal, Vice Chairman of the Technical Delivery Office, and Youssif Al Musleh, Competition Venues Executive Director, both attended the ceremony to pass on their congratulations for realising such an achievement. They were also both given a tour of the site, where sub- and super-structure works are now progressing.
They commended the rapid progress being made in such a safe working environment. “Safety is paramount on our sites but this is an achievement we should all take a moment to appreciate,” the Vice Chairman explained. “To reach such a milestone while making such rapid progress on-site is testament to the skill and dedication of everyone here and I want to thank you personally for your efforts.”
