(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail), announced that the company has achieved an unprecedented 6 million work hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI) at the Doha Metro Green Line works.

The feat achieved was a compilation of the safe work done by Qatar Rail's construction contractors led by Austrian firm PORR and its joint venture partners Saudi Bin Laden Group and HBK.

On the occasion, a delegation from Qatar Rail led by Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Turki Al Subaie, Managing Director and Chairman of the Executive Committee of Qatar Rail, and Saad Ahmed Al Muhannadi, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Rail, visited

Al Messila station site at the Green Line project where they were briefed on the progress of the work.

To mark the achievement, Qatar Rail honoured contractors and workers of the Green Line for their efforts last year.

Abdulla Al Subaie extended his appreciation to the alliance of companies executing Doha Metro's Green Line project "for their efforts to maintain the work environment and meet international standards of quality, health, safety, environment, and security at the worksites".

Al Subaie said "the clear standards that Qatar Rail has adopted since the beginning of the Doha Metro project had a positive impact on the work environment as it gave the company the ability to complete the work safely, thanks to the concerted efforts and commitment of everyone".

Highlighting the health and safety standards that the company applies, Qatar Rail CEO said: "Qatar Rail has lately made many achievements in the field of quality, health, safety, and environment. The strategy of Occupational Safety implemented in Qatar Rail's projects contributes to avoiding incidents of any kind".

Jassim Al Ansari, Green Line Project Director at Doha Metro said "the success is due to the international standards followed in health and safety at Qatar Rail. The contractors of the Green Line project at Doha Metro were able to implement these standards in their day-to-day work in order to accomplish this great success. This will definitely add to the reputation of the companies working on the Green Line project".
