Damac Properties, a Dubai-based property development company, revealed it has achieved 4.4 million safe hours at AYKON City, the $2 billion luxury mixed-use project being developed on Sheikh Zayed Road.
This comes as a result of the company’s dedication to its workers’ safety since 2002 by adopting the highest safety standards, according to a press release.
Niall McLoughlin, senior vice president of DAMAC Properties, said: “DAMAC’s ‘Safety First’ culture plays a central role at every stage of our business process. Whether it’s awarding construction contracts or conducting regular independent assessments by HSE auditors, at DAMAC, we believe in going the extra mile when it comes to achieving our goal of ‘zero incidents’.”
“I congratulate the project management and HSE teams on this exemplary safety performance. We will continue to adopt new and innovative ways to enhance our health and safety performance even further,” McLoughlin added.
Earlier this year, Virtual Reality pods were installed at AYKON City to simulate real-life hazard scenarios and raise safety awareness among workers.
In 2018, Damac had recorded 25 million safe worker hours at the DAMAC Towers by Paramount.
