Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) held a safety and security training course in co-operation with the Interior Ministry.
The two-week programme, at the circuit’s state-of-the-art Media Centre, was held as part of BIC’s keenness to develop its safety and security procedures amidst the new challenges brought about by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
A total of 25 of the department’s team members took part.
Among the topics discussed was the development of action plans and mechanisms to regulate the entry of crowds during various events at the BIC, in line with precautionary measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Also talked about were enhancing procedures in customer care, security protocols, inspections, and health and safety systems.
Field exercises in fire-fighting, first aid, and how to deal with emergency situations were also done.
“We would like to thank the Ministry of Interior for its continuous support and co-operation with BIC in the various events that we host, whether they be local or international occasions,” said BIC chief executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa.
Shaikh Salman also thanked all those who organised and took part in the course.
General Directorate of Guards director general Brigadier General Jaber Al Juwaid Al Khalidi affirmed that the administration always seeks to strengthen the principle of community partnership with various civil society institutions.
The trainees were honoured by Shaikh Salman and Brigadier General Al Khalidi. Each participant was presented with a certificate along with a professional licence.
