Covid-19 Social Distancing and Viral Spread Containment

Enforced Action, Measures and Precautions
We take the safety and well-being of our workers and the general public very seriously at all times, ensuring full compliance with best practices and International Health & Safety standards on all of our projects.

In the current Covid-19 situation, we have assessed risks to both our workers and the public at large, and have taken strict measures and precautions, at offices, construction sites, and labor accommodations.

Public Facing Measures Taken:
• The majority of our worksites are physically separated and restricted to the public.
• Work sites that are undertaken on city streets, or where there is a possibility of any contact with the public, apply social distancing measures per the advice given by the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization, to the greatest extent possible.
• All construction workers are issued protective workwear, including gloves, and face masks have been provided as an additional precaution when social distancing is difficult to maintain.
• All construction personnel undergo health and wellness monitoring on a daily basis to ensure they are not symptomatic. In the event that symptoms are observed, immediate actions are taken to isolate and provide appropriate medical assistance.
• Workers are transported between worksites and accommodation in dedicated buses that are cleaned thoroughly before and after each journey.
• Worker accommodation for the metro contractors is of a high standard, is hygienic and kept clean by skilled cleaners who are trained in hygienic cleaning.
• All of their camps are regularly inspected by government Health & Safety officials. Ample facilities are available for workers to wash their hands, which they have been instructed to do regularly.
• Hand sanitizers have been installed at camps and work sites.
• In line with Government directives, movement is restricted and curfews are being strictly enforced at all our camps to protect workers.
• With respect to protecting and maintaining our construction sites and installed assets, contractors continue to secure, clean, maintain, and keep the sites safe each evening during the curfew period.

Restrictions to movement and social distancing are likely to continue for weeks. Riyadh Bus and Riyadh Metro understand that it is incumbent on all contracting entities to ensure that effective working practices are in place, strictly enforced, and adhered to by all workers, and that they fully comply with all Government directives.
