From the more that 38,000 (peak) labor force, a group of sixteen (16) highly motivated and safety-oriented Filipinos attended the first BOSH Training Course conducted by the PSSP-MER upon its recognition by the Philippine DOLE-BWC as a Safety Training Organization last February 2009.

The sand storm is howling at more than 44kph from the north of Saudi Arabia since yesterday but it has reached its maximum at the Khurais Projects only today.

Once the windspeed reaches more than  20mph/32kph, lifting activities shall stop in all Saudi Aramco sites. This is in compliance to the safety requirements of SA GI 7.028 and the SA  Safety Handbook on  page 31.
