The adoption of the vaccination has been encouraged through comprehensive communication campaigns targeted at employees to raise awareness about the programme. To provide a seamless and safe vaccination experience, Oman Cables has partnered with the leading Oman International hospital.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, Oman Cables has implemented multiple layers of hygiene and safety measures to curb the spread of the virus. These include social distancing and mandatory masks, compulsory screening for visitors, rigorous disinfection and sanitization drives.

In support of the efforts of the governmental authorities in the Sultanate of Oman, Oman Cables identifies its role in contributing towards critical causes by offering support to help local communities and members become more resilient, particularly those on the frontlines soldiering every day to save hundreds of lives.
