Industrial Uniform and Safety in Saudi Arabia

Industrial uniforms are the most essential for the employees working in various kinds of factories, construction sites, and oil and gas industries. In Saudi Arabia, there is a large number of oil and gas industries. According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), around 17 per cent of the world’s petroleum reserves are in Saudi Arabia. The oil and gas sector accounts for about 50 per cent of gross domestic product, and about 70 per cent of export earnings. Safety and health management is one of the vital concerns of Oil and Gas industries.

It is because most of the operational conditions, chemicals, and end products like hydrocarbons and their derivatives associated with Oil and Gas production are well-known to pose serious safety and health threats to the workers.

Workers in the Oil and Gas industry are susceptible to various kinds of safety and injury hazards. The workers sometimes get struck by tools. Some are entangled in any machinery equipment and some are crushed by other objects. Fire and explosion may occur due to the presence of highly combustible hydrocarbons or other ignition sources. Workers suffer many health hazards due to working in confined spaces which have limited opening for entry and exit and inadequate natural ventilation. Many times casualties occur when workers need to move on an uneven surface at high elevation. It may also be due to the non-availability of fall protection systems.

The workers are exposed to chemical hazards such as toxic and corrosive chemicals, carcinogens, asphyxiates, irritants, and sensitizing substances. Besides the chemical hazards, the workers are also exposed to many physical hazards like noise, vibration, extreme temperature, and harmful radiation. Biological hazards like bacteria, parasites, viruses, and fungus can cause severe infection or disease. Ergonomic hazards that damage the musculoskeletal system, by affecting the muscles or ligaments of the lower back, tendons or nerves of the hands/wrists, or the knee bones may occur due to manual handling of heavy equipment, repetitive motions, and improper postures.

Industrial uniforms help the workers working in potentially dangerous conditions. These uniforms are made from high-quality fabrics such as Aramids, Coated Nylon, Modacrylic, and Polybenzimidazole or PBI fibers that give the highest level of protection and durability. Industrial uniforms for employees especially those working in the oil and gas industries are made from Flame-Resistant Clothing. These types of uniforms have self-extinguishing properties and will not easily catch fire.  They are specifically manufactured to protect wearers from potential intermittent flames and thermal exposure.

It is the need of the hour to develop a safety management system to effectively address worker safety issues and reduce the rate of injuries and accidents in the industry. The oil and gas industry should perform hazard identification and risk assessment like frequent tracking and monitoring of various health and safety indicators. There should be well-documented strategies and action plans which are easily understood and readily available to all the workers.

Every worker should follow consistent health and safety practices as instructed. The industries should develop an environment of open communication and give time and space for workers to get to know each other. Building strong personal connections among the workers will develop trust and confidence. All these measures will help in reducing the cost associated with accidents and ensures the well-being of the employees. These steps towards safety will develop a more inspired, and performance-driven workforce.
