Oman Airports Achieves five-star Grading in the British Safety Council’s Occupational Health and Safety Audit

Oman Airports has successfully completed a best practice Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council demonstrating its commitment towards the continual improvement of the health and safety management systems and associated arrangements across the airports managed by the company, and particularly Muscat International Airport.

The Five Star Audit is a comprehensive, contemporary and quantified process, which benchmarks health and safety management performance against the latest best practice techniques.

Oman Airports underwent a comprehensive, quantified, and robust evaluation of its occupational health and safety policies, processes, and practices.
