Riyadh is the capital and largest city of Saudi Arabia. It is also one of the fastest developing cities in the UAE. Riyadh’s second industrial city alone employs more than one lakh workers who are associated with sectors such as petrochemical, plastic, construction, aluminium and steel, food, paper and publishing, electrical, leather and pharmaceutical.
Though there is no statutory requirement for industries to employ safety experts at their business establishments, depending upon the nature of risks and hazards, employment opportunities are being created for occupational safety experts in Riyadh. To educate employees and students, who want to start their career in safety departments, Green World Group, a pioneer institution in imparting training on occupational health and safety, has been conduction industry-specific diploma courses.
