Al-Terkait added “This accomplishment is a living proof that EQUATE is fully committed to ensure the safety of each and every individual working on site, including contractors.”

“This proves that EQUATE continues to lead our industry in safety performance and sets new achievement standards,” noted Al-Terkait.
