Our work in the local community

Our Saudi Future Generation Programme provides engineering, construction, supervisory, and safety skills training. For example, one of our recent training courses focused on key aspects of personal safety:

  • basic first aid
  • site field injuries
  • and what to do if someone has a heart attack

Petrofac’s medical doctor for employees in Khobar, taught 130 young Saudis how to administer Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), in accordance with the American Heart Association standards.

Petrofac engineers in Saudi Arabia are also mentoring 80 Saudi construction trainees at the Jazan refinery project. The engineers volunteered to become mentors as part of our Saudi Arabian Work Experience (SAWE) scheme. The trainees, who attend local high schools, will go through more than 160 hours of classroom training, and 12 months of on-the-job work.

Our training schemes give us the opportunity to continue to develop local Saudi talent and to create sustainable skills within the community.
