Diriyah Company today announced that it had achieved more than 30 million man-hours, employed 19,181 contract workers, and utilized more than 1,200 pieces of heavy equipment.
The remarkable milestone reflects the company’s continuous commitment to providing a safe working environment and validates the implementation of the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) department’s comprehensive measures to mitigate risks and ensure the well-being of people in the workplace.
