Continuing its efforts to engage with the community across all spheres, Sohar Aluminium (SA) conducted an evening full of entertainment and learning “Let’s have Fun with Sohar Aluminium” under the theme “Road Safety” on 20th of February.

This comes as a part of SA’s series of Key Stakeholder Engagement Events which were launched in high footfall locations in 2014. These family oriented events give a personal face to the industry and constitute an excellent platform for sharing the company values and communicating vital messages such as “Keep your Hands & Fingers Safe” and “Anti-littering” with members of the surrounding community.

Let’s have Fun with Sohar Aluminium is a novel “edutainment” experience for young ones that raises awareness on various topics that Sohar Aluminium believes in such as safety matters and environment protection in an exciting and jolly atmosphere.

Kids aged from 3 years and above had the opportunity to take part in an attractive array of fun events and educational programmes that included quizzes and games in a dedicated area at the Safeer Mall, Sohar.

The event took place from 5pm to 9pm and was attended by around 500 visitors. This sixth event focused on “Road Safety” in which children came to know the rules for crossing the road, to wear their seatbelts in the vehicle, and not to distract the car is on the road.

Through such events, SA aims to maintain its close ties with the surrounding communities and maximise its positive impact in community services. They also aim to raise awareness among the community by sharing their values on various environmental, health and safety issues.

Sohar Aluminium was formed in September 2004 to undertake a landmark Greenfield aluminium smelter project in the Sultanate of Oman, and is jointly owned by Oman Oil Company, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC - TAQA and Rio Tinto Alcan.
