Aramco 2020 Traffic Safety Excellence Award
Company recognizes employees’ commitment to legacy of safety.
The Traffic Safety Signature Program Division (TSSPD) has announced the winners of the 2020 Aramco Traffic Safety Excellence Award (TSEA).
Aramco exerts all efforts to promote safety as a corporate value on both business and individual levels. Contributing to these efforts, TSSPD has developed a number of traffic safety initiatives, including the TSEA, addressing drivers’ behaviors.
Aali M. Al-Zahrani, vice president of Safety and Industrial Security, recognized and congratulated all winners as role models in traffic safety. Al-Zahrani emphasized that we are moving in the right direction with regards to traffic safety, and we need to sustain our current achievements and look forward to more efforts to further enhance the on- and off-the-job traffic safety performance.
During the award ceremony, Abdullah S. Al-Rajhi, director of TSSPD gave his opening remarks at the ceremony. “We are gathered here to recognize and celebrate your commitment to the company’s long-lasting legacy to safety.”
Highlighting Aramco employees, SMPs, and trainees throughout the Kingdom, the award promotes a safe driving culture and encourages participants to maintain a violation-free record inside and outside Aramco by recognizing employees and their departments. The award has two categories based on age group, the first category is the 30 years and below, and the second category is above 31 years. Annually, 25 winners are chosen with the top five departments based on participation rates.
The award criteria gauges participants’ personal commitments toward a safe driving culture, as having zero traffic violations for the past year, supported with a printout from ABSHER, in addition to having a valid driver’s license, registration booklet, and a valid vehicle inspection.
More than 2,500 participants from 95 departments have registered for the 2020 TSEA, which is a 100% increase from the 2019 registrations.
The participants went through a rigorous selection process, including a theoretical and practical test in collaboration with the Industrial Training Department.
