Parsons is pleased to announce that the Riyadh Metro project in Saudi Arabia, commissioned by Arriyadh Development Authority, recently exceeded 3 million safe work hours, less than 1 year after surpassing 2 million safe work hours without a single lost-time incident.
Riyadh Metro Transit Consultants (RMTC) is the engineer of record for two Riyadh Metro contracts—it is performing program and construction management services as a consortium of three partners, with Parsons having the lead role in Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management.
“Safety is one of Parsons’ six core values, and we are firmly committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment in all of our offices and on each of our projects,” said Gary Adams, Parsons Group President. “I am very proud of the RMTC project team for achieving such a significant safety milestone; their shared commitment and combined efforts have seen the application of stringent HSE policies and standards enforced on site for all key stakeholders.”
