30 Million Safe Man Hours Without LTI

Managing safety is never an easy task, and unless you have a 100% committed management to QHSE, it is almost impossible to get positive results. March 20th 2017 marked a milestone in Olayan Descon’s history by achieving a remarkable 30 Million Man-Hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI). We take immense pride in appreciating our skilled, technical & brilliant workforce that remains committed to carrying out safe work practices while maintaining their quality of workmanship at the same time at every project assigned to them. All employees worked in union to achieve this target and we are happy to dedicate this success story to them. While we appreciate and congratulate the frontline task force, the laborers, the execution team, workshop personnel and project drivers who are the key asset for our projects; we also would like to congratulate each and every back office staff who provides the critical backup support needed to maintain our niche in the market.


Congratulations to you all! Keep putting safety first. With God’s help, our projects are all set to continue with same commitment of “Safety First” culture and we shall soon achieve a higher target breaking previous records.


Thank you again for everyone’s support and commitment to incident-free operation!
