Dhahran — Mohammed J. Al-Dossary, supervisor of the Loss Prevention Department’s Technical Services Unit, has been selected from a highly competitive pool of safety professionals from around the world to receive the National Safety Council’s (NSC) Rising Star Award. The award by the U.S. organization is in recognition of work done by safety leaders younger than 40 years old who show dedication to safety leadership at work.
“I am honored to have won this prestigious safety award and to work at a company where I have gained a vast amount of safety and leadership experience,” said Al-Dossary.
Al-Dossary has been with the Loss Prevention Department (LPD) for 14 years and in that time has led a Process Safety Excellence Initiative, as well as an initiative for in-house calibration of portable gas monitors, which resulted insignificant cost savings.
He is currently leading a program for a Saudi Aramco-hosted Process Safety Master of Science degree in association with the National University of Singapore.
He was selected by Aali M. Al-Zahrani, Safety and Industrial Security vice president, to be the coordinator of the company’s response to major industrial incidents where he analyzes safety trends, determines the underlying causes for major industrial incidents, and reviews company programs to prevent reoccurrence of such incidents.
Ghassan G. Abufaraj, LPD manager stated, “You are certainly a true and emerging leader of safety. We are blessed of having you part of the team.”
Al-Dossary is the first Saudi Arabian to be selected as an NSC Rising Star of Safety and he has paved the way for other young Saudi safety professionals to excel in safety and be recognized at an international level.
